My son threw a  toy into it and now the screen  is shattered as you can see. I wonder if anyone could give a a repair estimate or suggest where to get one. 

There are no electronics repairs shops close to where I live and I don't want to pay for shipping sending it to ASUS. I need estimate for my insurance.

Hi wing8ing4some1, and welcome to our forum



With cost of new VDU's now at a very low price and the cost of repairs labour, parts, overheads etc., in the average workshop being relatively high in comparison, it is rarely economic to attempt any but the simplest repairs.


If you brought this VDU into our workshop for a quotation, we would not even offer a repair quote, just recommend that you go get a new one from many of the online retailers or your local technology store. 


A new VDU would provide a product guaranteed (usually for a year but sometimes longer) and your insurance provider should have little difficulty in understanding the situation.


Just occasionally insurers have arrangements with  a specific repairer(s) where the insurers pass large volumes of repair work  of this nature to them and have a courier service lined up to assist in this.


In the absence of such an arrangement a new replacement VDU is the way to go.
