Hi guys.

I own an Azus Zenbook Ux31e ry009v, and the screen is messed up. You probably know the drill: It started with one little crack, and now half of the screen is black, green and yellow with dead pixels.

I could get someone to fix it for me, but I'd rather save some money and replace it myself. It should be fairly easy, and I'm willing to take the risk.

However, it seems to be absolutely impossible to find a new screen for this model. Everywhere I look it's 'temporary out of stock' or 'discontinued'.
I don't know why - it's not even that old (1½ years give or take).

So now I ask for your help to find me a place where I can buy a screen that suits this laptop. Maybe I'm just an idiot.. :)

These are the stats as far as I can tell:

Size: 13.3-inch WideScreen (11.3"x7.1")
Resolution: WXGA++ (1600x900) HD+
Type: Glossy
Backlight type: LED


Side question: Since I have to replace it anyway - what would it take to upgrade the screen to a touch-sensitive one (other than a compatible screen, of course)?

Side question 2: I could also use a new power supply 'entrance' (What's that called? Where you plug the power cord in the PC?)


THANK you very much!

If it's not possible to find a replacement screen that was made for this exact model (seems like it went out of production), do you reckon it would be a possibility to use a screen from another brand? Assuming it's the right size, resolution and backlighting, of course.

@yakaman

I did find one on eBay, but the price was ridiculous (around $5-600 i believe)
I'm starting to think that the best solution is to buy a new laptop. :(
