Replacing laptop LCD panel

I have a basic Toshiba Satellite laptop, and its screen is apparently cracked. I can see colored lines or blots that are rapidly spreading. Is it easy to replace the LCD screen yourself?

I've removed the bit about suppliers to avoid this being closed as a shopping recommendation/subjective question. – Linker3000 Apr 28 '11 at 12:20

I have replaced the screen on a Dell Laptop. It was very easy, requiring just a screwdriver and a deal of care keeping all of the screws in correct groups as they were of slightly different lengths. For the Dell there is a decent online manual giving instructions on how to disassemble the case and where all of the connectors were hidden. I do not know about the Toshiba laptop, but Google will probably help.

I cannot comment on your supplier as I have never used them. I got my bits from a shop trading on eBay.
