Hi, I knocked over my Acer H236HL earlier. It fell forward onto the screen and looks cracked underneath, lines just move across the screen now and whatever is displayed jumps up and down. The screen doesn't feel cracked but looks like it is "underneath at the top", if you understand me. Sorry for my poor explanation.

If it is possible to get it fixed, how would I go about doing so? Please excuse my reflection on the photo, thanks.

Thanks for the pic, that really helps. No, you won't be able to get this fixed. You'll end up replacing the whole product.

Yep, as Problem_Solver says, it's gone. The LCD panel is damaged, and because there's so little else in a monitor, replacing a panel ends up costing more than a monitor...
