Acer has been making quality budget laptops that compete with major brands for many years. Even though these laptops are durable, they can still suffer from the occasional problem. For example, if your Acer's LCD screen has been damaged or cracked, or if the backlight or screen inverter has died, it may be time to remove the LCD screen entirely and replace it with a new one. Taking your Acer to a service technician is certainly an option, but there is a way to remove the screen yourself in the privacy of your own home, and it shouldn't take more than a few minutes.
