I am 69 years old and bought myself and 4 grandchildren Acer Chromebooks. I heard the screen messing up was quite common. So when my screen went first, I knew I had to learn to fix it, or spend another small fortune if they all broke down. So here I am. The screen is adventure..putting a new one in. Will return here to do that. Thanks for the site.
