I am the proud new owner of a cute little silver laptop from Asia. It actually has a dual English Japanese keyboard. Naturally I am smitten. I
found it in the garbage.
When I saw it my geekternal instincts took over. I wanted to save it.
When I flipped up the screen, I saw the probable cause for its abandonment by its original owner. The light sensitive fabric on the inside of the
screen on which the images and text appear had been torn in places, revealing black areas. Looking more closely I saw evidence that the laptop must
have taken a hard impact of some sort. There were scratches and small bits of plastic missing.

I would like to find a replacement for the screen, but am having difficulty getting technical info about it. The diagonal measurement of the screen
width is 12 1/8" (approx.).
Does anyone know the make and model of this screen or a sure way of getting that information short of requesting it directly from NEC or taking the
laptop apart? All help appreciated.
