Give the manufacturer and model name/ number of the laptop.

 

Generally, the cost would be part(s) plus whatever the repairman charges per hour.

I would think most would charge a one hour minimum.

 

There are several computer repair pros that read these forums daily. Give the info

and one will be able to give you a more precise answer.

 

EDIT:  If you decide to use a repair service, for peace of mind, remove HDD before

leaving at shop.

This is one situation where the newer your laptop, the easier it is to replace the screen.  Old laptops with fluorescent lighting can be a real pain to replace the screen.  New laptop screens, with built in LED lighting, generally take about 20 minutes to perform a screen replacement. As long as you're careful, and don't get too rough removing the bezel, or the screen connector/ribbon, it is a straightforward job.

Here are a couple of links.  It seems to be some sort of fancy thin screen so it looks like a 50% premium/markup over regular LED screen of that size.

Thanks,

     They also say that it is slimmer than your average screen, probably why it cracked, it just bumped a desk.

   Thanks
