Measuring your laptop screen is easy - and it's really important that you give us accurate measurements so take your time doing it.

Proper measurements will ensure we have the correct parts available for your laptop repair and that we are quick and efficient.

In Summary

Laptop or PC screen sizes are always measured bottom left corner to top right corner in inches - only measure the viewable area of the screen (black in colour) - do not include the frame around the screen in your measurements.
It's as simple as that.

If you aren't sure of the size, don't have a tape-measure or ruler or are otherwise pre-occupied just bring it in to us and we'll take care of everything for you.
