Thank you all for your input.   Impact Computers do appear to have one, and at £200 it is cheaper than a new laptop.

The ONLY reasonable place in the region is:DISCOUNT PORTABLES 113, bd Léon sauvan 06690 tourrette-levens TEL 0892681395 0.34 € MIN. Ask for Fred. I'm not sure of his English, but he is the portable specialist and does Dell a lot. If anyone has the part it will be Fred. He buys by lots from brokers and resells or parts them out. Try your luck. You also can see what he is selling on eBay locally by clicking here (searching for "2500" or "ecran"): http://search.ebay.fr/search/search.dll?MfcISAPICommand=GetResult&ht=1&query2=&search_option=1&minPrice=&maxPrice=&category0=160&exclude=&st=&SortProperty=MetaEndSort&maxRecordsPerPage=100&worldlocation=ebayavail&region=140006&available_to=71&located_in=71&ebaycurr=999&submit=+Rechercher+&siteid=71&query=&shortcut=4&ebaytag1code_tmp=&ebaytag1_tmp=&ebaytag1code=&ebaytag1=&ebaytag12=ebayreg&from=R14Also here is their direct site link for screens. http://www.discountportables.fr/default.php?categoryId=5&sousCatId=16If they don't show what you need or you aren't sure, send them a note. They are just north of Nice, not too far from Auchan.Best of luck!JERRY

As its quite an old laptop, I doubt if it is worth repairing, but you could connect an ordinary computer monitor/LCD screen to it and use it as a mini desktopTony

Broken laptop LCD - Yikes!! bad news - been there, done that.

If you are looking for a local solution, phone Maintronic that I mentioned on this previous thread

You might find that it is as pricey as Dell have indicated, in which case you can forget about a repair but at least Maintronic are very reliable in their estimates and you'll know exactly where you stand. 

If you don't want the cost of repair, I'll offer cash for its scrap value.
