My bf has an ASUS Zenbook UX31E. It has a flickering screen, and also 'the white screen of death'. I updated the Chipset and VGA while I managed to keep it running. Took it to the ASUS store today and it's just a few months expired warranty :(. He only switched it on and said the screen was dead and it would cost $500 in total to replace the screen!!

 

Now...I was thinking maybe it was just a loose cable inside? Should I open up the laptop myself? I have previously worked on laptops before (but years ago when I was young, the kind of laptops with the disconnecting battery). Usually on old laptops you remove the battery first to make sure all power is gone. This one has an internal battery inside. Would it be safe for me to open up this myself and take a look? Also I am just thinking of installing a new screen myself.  What do you think?

Changing a new screen is not that hard and the fact that they want to charge $500 is a joke. Run the number on the back of the screen. I think the last one I did cost less than $60. Just take your time and be patient.

Unfortunately, this model's screen is very hard to find because it's a custom slim design for these ultrabooks. $500, isn't out of the question for a system like this. If you want to try it, the front LCD bezel comes off to reveal the screen cable if you want to try pushing the connector in, but do not touch the LCD panel. It gets glued into the back cover when installed and is easily damaged.

My mistake. I didnt realize it had the slim screen. I found the screen online for ~230.00 shipped.

I also had problems with the screen on my Asus UX31E. What i know is that it need a total replacement. The problem is that i am based in Argentina and there are no spare parts for that machine here.

 

Wooshie, where did you found the screen for $230? could you, please send me the link? Kind regards.
