    So I dropped my macbook about 5 feet onto concrete 20 minutes ago, devastated...it was a 1.3 years old and in pristine condition.

    Luckily it still works fine, little rash to the power button corner where it met the concrete, and as in seen in the picture, dead pixels.

    Now, without getting professional help, is there any tips or tricks to get those pixels working again?

    Thanks.

    Not really, as they seem to be dead. You could try replacing the LCD yourself, if you feel savvy enough.

    No, but you can scout iFixIt for guides and part numbers and then hunt on eBay for the cheaper parts, as iFixIt takes a steep price for their parts.

    stridemat, you sod.
