Smokies Hiker:
The screen is likely damaged and will likely need to be replaced. Depending on the age of your laptop, you'll need to decide if repairs are better than replacing the laptop with a new ( or newer ) one. I'd guesstimate the replacement cost with labor at a local computer repair shop ( for a faster repair time than having a friend do the job ) would be $75 to $100 depending on the cost of the new screen. If you or a friend do the replacement, it should cost $50 to $75 for the replacement screen. If your computer is 4 or 5 years old, a new or newer computer may be more beneficial as far as the technology and the operating system.

Connect it to a monitor. Buy a new laptop.
BUT no need to freak out! After all, all your IMPORTANT files (the ones you have bothered to look after) will all be in your backup copy. If you havent bothered to spend 5 minutes a week looking after the files, then they cant be that important to you.
Starrysky:
Most laptops these days are thin, flexible and when you bend the thin glass sandwich that makes the LCD panel, it breaks. Only special heavier duty laptops with thick metal skins survive the abuse you put that one through.
Good luck!

Use HDMI cable (like these ones – https://www.amazon.com/HDMI-Cables-Video… ) to hook up your laptop to HDTV. Hold down [Windows] + [P] key to switch between various display screens

If your laptop / HDTV doesn't have HDMI port, then use DVI or VGA cable

Use USB Flash Drive – https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Cruzer-Fr… to backup important school stuff. USB flash drives are cheap, easily available everywhere & portable

Hopefully you have online backup & enough of your own money saved to replace it.
