More than just your LCD screen was damaged. Whether it is the motherboard,
the hard drive, the optical drive or a combination of components is
impossible to say without physically examining the laptop. Either contact
the laptop mftr.'s tech support for repair/replacement or take it to a
competent local computer tech. This will not be someone from a
BigComputerStore/GeekSquad type of place.
