I have an acer aspire 5741g-3652 laptop that has a broken screen. I opened it up to remove the screen, but the the connector was stuck to the screen itself, and even though i tried to remove it as gently as possible, it was still damaged..:( 

now i need a new screen and a new connector cable, but im not sure where to find one...
Im wondering if it is possible to get a new one and if so, where (specifics??)

you can get the screen from ebay--have bought quite a few screens from there

though i always go for a seller with 100% feedback and that gives a warranty on the screen--about £40 or so

the ribbon probably from ebay as well--it should have the part number on it

Yeah, I've gotten ribbons on ebay as well. Also, I've purchased brand new LCD panels from for not much more than used ones on ebay.
