|Forget about new screen if it's going to cost that much, it won't make sense because chances are something else will fail so that's even more expense.|
You'd be better spending your money on a new laptop. I recommend a Toshiba if your budget will stretch that far because they aren't cheap but are very well made & reliable.
Failing that, go for a Packard Bell which isn't as expensive. Bought my wife one 7 years ago and it's still going strong, it's never been any trouble, a good choice.
Oh, and both brands have excellent customer support on the web, that's always worth remembering when choosing a laptop brand.
