I think you're pretty much stuck with what you have. I highly doubt you can buff it out. You'll have to get the monitor replaced.

Yeah, I don't think you can salvage something like that, the aftermath of young children and expensive items is rather.. devastating. Luckily a 15" LCD is relatively easy to replace.

If it's those light scratches, that eyeglass repair stuff might work, but for really deep ones, you're SOL. Get a new one, sorry.
