I have an old Dell laptop an E6420 which I use for a couple of things and kids use it for some school practice programs. The LCD is now black. The computer works fine when I hooked it up to my bigscreen tv. I was looking for an easy fix. It is and intel i5. I noticed on ebay there are a few E6420's for cheap that have working LCDs but have other issues. I am curious if I buy one that has an intel i7 (no hDD, no cd drive ect.) if I could not only switch my LCD out but also switch my i5 for the i7 processor?

Yes you should be able to do so without much problem, E6420 is an easily serviceable laptop.

I bought a complete top half of the laptop for $30 w/shipping from ebay. It included a webcam that mine did not. Works perfect and was easy to install.
