I recall another message about laptop screen recently, this one wasn't drunk, it was having coffee.
If I remember correctly the quote was $400 to replace.
Depending on the age and specs of the laptop, it may pay to check the price of a new one that is comparable, also you will have new warranty.
If you can live with it for a few months, it may be worth while to wait untill about September, new laptops may then be offered with a free upgrade to the new Windows 7 OS.
It's expected out in October with computers purchased a month before including the free upgrade.
It's a far better OS with better power managment for laptops and less resource hungery.

Put a fan on it or bury it in rice, opened. It might suck out the water.

something simular happened to my old laptop about 3 years ago on my xp.

of course now im running a personlized computer running on vista .O.S.

thou i think it was cos i dropped a magnet near the screen.
the screen was replaced fro several hundred pounds....now it'll be a single one or two cos these things were worth alot more 4-5 years ago lol

I never thought of claiming it on home owners insurance. Are you sure they are going to pay for that?
