Hi all. After spilling a couple of drops of coffee on the right side of the keyboard of my laptop, I decided to open up my laptop to dry up any spillage that could've gone underneath the palm assembly. Anyway, I did that and the laptop is working perfectly but in the process of prying the palm assembly up (I didn't have a spudger so I used a flat-head screwdriver) the screw driver slipped and scratched the screen
. I wouldn't take notice of it if it was only visible when my laptop is powered off or the display is off but when I booted up into Windows, I could see a clear scratch line with distorted colours in the scratch line itself.
I've already seen a video on how to disassemble the screen and just to make sure I could do it, I tried doing it myself and it was fine, no problem, I did it. Now it's just a case of getting a replacement screen. After searching for a while and taking note of the P/N, I finally settled on two different options. My current scratched screen is a glossy one but personally, I prefer a matte screen like I have on my desktop PC. When working in college and the sun is out, I have to turn the brightness up to avoid reflection on the screen. But as my laptop screen is glossy, can I only ever use a glossy screen with my laptop or making the switch to matte will work just fine? Thanks.
The Dell P/N (DP/N) of my screen is 08MN61
