Default broken LCD screen

Ok, the laptop dropped, the screen is messed up. No external damage noticeable.

Will this require an entirely new LCD? Will replacing the LCD fix the problem or will more be required?

Picture.

Hot damn that's wrecked. If the machine "turns on", then, you should probably only have to replace the LCD.

It's not cracked in the sense that there's any damage on the outside. It's a Gateway E-475M if that helps...

Oh yea, that LCD screen is most definitely broken. I'm sure you can get a replacement from Gateway, or you can even search eBay for a replacement LCD.
