I usually order replacement screens through eBay stores myself. Anyway, you might not want to fix it for yourself, but a working laptop can be sold for more than one that doesn't.

I went to Best Buy and the Geek Squad idiot kept saying "It's going to cost you upwards of what you bought the laptop for." And I'd ask him to be specific and he wouldn't say exactly, really frustrating.
I knew for a fact it would not cost me $600 to fix a laptop screen, but I was actually considering fixing this and selling it to a friend, what would be a reasonable price for it, I would of course wipe it and reinstall Windows 7.
It was a $600 Laptop so i was thinking like 300-400. He was going to buy a ****ty laptop for $400 so mine would be an upgrade for his, and I've only had it since February. The only problem with it is i've worn off the 'S' Key, and you can't disable the touch pad, but I've never been able to.

I also appreciate the quick responses and apologize for not being quick in return, i was on a camping trip.
