3k to 5k depending on quality and prevalent loot.


500-1000 rs. service charge for replacement.

service center: new genuine screen, may pinch your pockets, but you get the quality
third party repair shop: depends on the specific shop, you can negotiate. You may have to either go with the screen they prefer or carry your own screen if they accept. The screen can ditch you any time. I will generally attribute to one’s karma/stars/zodiac/galaxy/constellation whatever one calls it.
Other option is buy one online and DIY. I prefer this in my case.

On a different note, ensure it is really the screen problem, not the connecting wire in between. Its little tricky if you do not know what you are dealing with. Generally, one has to put a new cable and see if the problem persists, if not change screen. A new screen may not come with the connecting cable. I’m not quite sure of it.

Missed to add this.
If possible, check the display out on external monitor through VGA/HDMI to ensure motherboard is not the culprit. It could be another case.

Where are you located?

Any1 who have knowledege regarding this or experienced something like this plzz give ur advice

depending on the vendors of the screen/parts
even same model of computer made from one facility versus another
or
made few years apart can result in changes in connectors, sockets, pins.
and vendors may have some small patents here and there
to restrict others from making them.

thus oneself buying any unseen part
is very tricky unless exact part number and other things match up.

now there isn’t much difference between a good quality grey market part (like displays)
and the ones
sold by the “authorised” service centres or brand themselves.

last i recollect, the prices of replacement and labour for screens were within 50-100 rupees between various metros in north west and east India (for grey market, non brand repair shops).
They would also give 3 month warranty out of the 4-5 months they got
or maybe overall warranty by repair shop’s supplier itself is three months.

Check with Dell if they can service it with similar mini-warranty on the spare.
and
also find out if screen really needs change.
.
if in a big city, then better go to the large sceapyards, graveyards of e-waste and check if someone has some unit with compatible part in good condition and cannibalise that part from some other scrapped or old laptop… in case you don’t want to spend much
and
are okay with the risks, ifs and buts of a part from a seconds laptop.
