Default 6 easy laptop repairs: Your step-by-step guide

We live and work in a cold, cruel world where our laptops take a lot of abuse. Regardless of how gentle we try to be, it's inevitable that sooner or later our notebooks will get dropped, spilled on and worse.

While many people think that notebook damage can be repaired only by the manufacturer or a computer shop, there are some problems that can be inexpensively and easily fixed with common tools, spare parts and a little effort. Many of these repairs are no harder than high school art projects.

Using a couple of old, beat-up notebooks, I'll show you how to fix everything from a broken case and frayed charger cord to a bad fan and scratched screen. Each restoration project has time and cost estimates as well as what materials you'll need to do the trick. Just follow the directions I've outlined for each repair -- but be warned, your system might be a little different or require special parts and a slightly different approach.

Follow along and soon your system will be good as new and ready for its next mishap.

Hmmm .. rubbing toothpaste on your screen doesn't realy sound like a good idea, might work for matte screens but sure must leave some marks on a glossy screen.
Just don't scratch your screen
