Need help finding a screen replacement for a Asus G46 laptop. Model Number: G46VW - BHI5N43

Not gonna spend $400 at Bestbuy to replace it.

All I need is a link to ebay, or laptopscreen.

Here's what I've found:

https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/ASUS/G46VW-BHI5N43/

 

I can do the replacing myself, I just need to make sure I have the right screen to replace to.

You can find screens on Ebay and other sites for very reasonable prices, then go onto Youtube and find a tutorial . I s much more simple than many think.  KEY just take your time.  Punch in your model number I bet you will find a dozen or so!

MAKE CERTAIN: if you do this repair yourself to remove the power adapter and the battery, you can short out your main board by removing/reconnecting the ribbon cable if you leave a power source connected.

 

Also when buying a new lcd panel, use the part number on the current lcd panel itself, for example it may be WXGA15.6XXXX rev 1.2 or WXGAXXXX 502. Make sure you use the entire number...

Hello all who have helped, I thank you very much. Laptopscreen made a speedy delivery, it was predicted to be a 8 day delivery and got it in 3.

I am looking at myself typing this on my brand-new fixed screen. It was fairly simple.

 

WARNING TO ASUS G46 USERS WHO ARE REPLACING SCREENS:

When taking off the plastic case thingy, use a professional tool (plastic putty knife). We used just a plate scraper and broke several plastic snaps.
