I would need to know the exact model of your computer--the screen size--color to be able to research a replacement part for you.


Model identifier: MacBookPro3,1 --

15" screen -- Color: Silver

Ok--from what I can tell these may be what you are looking for.

1. Complete computer with board problems but good LCD and hinges allowing you to replace the whole screen.

2.A complete screen unit. You will need to be sure that what they have to sell is what you need and that your purchase if any is covered by ebay. I am also going to link the guide for replacing the LCD.



3. MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260 Display Assembly Replacement

+ I did a search on eBay and there were a lot of just frames.


can I buy the frame and use it as a fix?


Yes--its more work but I was not able to find a frame. Suggest you try ebay for that and I will include a link for removing the LCD which is what you will need to change the frame.


would you advice changing the screen or the frame?

what type of tools should I buy?

thanks for the help :)
