I accidentally knocked over the table that my laptop was on and everything fell. Now half the screen is darker, and it's flickering. Is there a way to fix this or do I need to get a new laptop? It seems to work fine otherwise. There was some liquid too, but I'm not sure if the laptop fell into the puddle of liquid, but it doesn't seem like it had.

Please help. This laptop is only a year old and in pretty good condition before.

I'm not sure. How do I check? (Sorry if that seems like a given, but I'm really bad with computers.)

Manufacturer and model?

Any chips, dents?

Any alignment problem after closing? Warped...bent...cracks around hinges?

Screens can be replaced. Would you consider trying that yourself? It is a low tech-knowledge
repair. Lots of instructions and videos available to help you do that.

+1 Screen are an easy replacement.

However you still need to actually find a replacement, if it's available somewhere. Give us the computer's manurfacturer and model number and someone on here will easily let you know.

Also, before going into a screen replacement, check to see that your computer isn't fataly damaged else where (just like buddy215 suggested) and isolate the issue to the screen.
