Have an
Acer Aspire Timeline M5-581T
I have looked around the interwebs and the better place for replacements
Laptop Replacement Screens- SOLD OUT

The screen that is currently in the laptop is destroyed. Needs to be replaced.

Ebay is not turning up any results for me whatsoever.
Help searching would be great.

OH and warranty doesnt exist for the laptop anymore. I have called support and they said it would be almost 200 bucks for replacement. And i would have to send it in for a month to be worked on. Asked about getting the screen only and they said you would have to call this place shopbysystem.com...I called no answer all day have been calling no answer what soever.

So ya im going to freak out. The rest of the laptop is fine boots up (hooked it up to a second monitor to make sure). Runs perfectly fine just the screen is kaput

You might have better luck if you remove the broken panel and get the mfg. and part number of the panel being used. Since panels are a commodity now, there are likely several other brands and model numbers that are using the same or compatible panel.

Just a thought.

The other thing you might try is to contact ScreenTek and see if they can point you to an online retailer that stocks your particular screen. ScreenTek is a panel wholesaler and it is the same place that many repair shops and etailers source their replacement panels from.

Here is the back of the screen...
It has a webcam and the power female connection for the webcam on the pcb

The screen i believe is distributed by lucom and is LG specific
I did remove the webcam and the cables for the screen.
I do know to that the screen is 1.7mm in depth...So there are only three others that i saw on panelook that would be related or similar

Rare screens lol

Hello ODIN,
i'm same as you, did u find a new screen ?
I'm still looking for it, but using the computer as desktop laptop with monitor is a shame!!!!

I'm actually doing this, but u have to know the graphic card in this computer working only with the screen it self!!!
It's have 2 graphic crad, one intel slow used for low jobs, and Nvidia working for games. It s automaticaly dectecting wich graphic card to use...
So if u put your computer on TV screen, u will never use u re Gforce graphic card cause it CAN'T WORK with HDMI out

I would be glad if u could answer me if u had found a new screen under 100$ !!! cause i have found it about 300box as LTdan83... considereing th eprice of the computer... it s not worthing it !!!

I will let u know if i find someone selling it !!!

Enjoy !!
