Answer to: Cracked Touchscreen Replacement PossibilityHi Oldturkey03, I have some fabulous news, and it will allow me to forego repair this time around. I had to do some shopping at Sam's Club today, so I decided to ask about the laptop I bought from them - and even though it was past the 90 day warranty, I asked if they would accept it as a return...the answer I got stunned me.

For whatever reason, it just didn't work out. Realizing I was in a tough spot, and that it would likely not be resolved by a tech (and after many attempts at fixing it myself through various means, found on YouTube,) I decided to pull the screen off again - and not lightly - I basically manhandled it off, because I just HAD to know whether or not the connector to the screen was properly seated. It was. So, whatev...
