A client gave in a laptop where the screen, about 2/3 down is cut off (image attached). It seems to me to be a physically broken screen, but I would like to rule out a broken connector. Can anyone based on the fact that the lines don't move when the screen is lowered or raised, no damage near the hinges, no noises coming from the hinges, confirm this? Or do I need to take apart the screen to make athourough diagnosis.
Would prefer not to as it takes a long time... but will do it if necessary. (But why do what is essentailly a waste?)
