Default I broke my laptop screen, can it be replaced?

Well some how I busted my laptop screen. It has a small crack inside the glass. It still works fine but looks gross, color has run all over the place.

It's a brand new Acer 5750-9460. Can it be replaced?

There are a ton of laptop part websites out there that are searchable by model number. You might find that the replacement screen costs almost as much as a new laptop depending on the model though.

It is very expensive if you will try to replace a new screen. As you said the color of it run all over the place. For replacing the screen you will pay for the screen itself, labor etc.and will cost somehow $250 - $400. I suggest you buy a new laptop instead of replacing a screen only.

Have you check with Acer to see if it is covered by the warranty? They should able to to fix it for you.

If you take it to Staples, Best Buy, or any other place similar, it will be $300 and up, so don't even bother. Your best bet is to find a replacement part, and try installing it yourself, or just use an external monitor.

The lcd membrane has been punctured somehow. If there is not outward signs of damage to the laptop itself I'd send it back to have the screen replaced. Under warranty of course.
If it's out of warranty then fixing it yourself is the best route to go. Really it's not complicated to do. You just have to pay attention to what you're doing.

Thanks everyone for the responses. It's under warranty but it is physical damage so it's not covered. I still may send it back as it's $199 including return shipping.
