    If you get it via HP, then it will cost you an arm and a leg, but if your computer is older then 12-24 month, then it could be that you are unable to get it via HP, as they drop their service pretty early.

    You can get the screen out, just search on youtube for your model + screen replacement etc., and it should have somewhere on the back a part-number.

    Google with the part number for a replacement. A screen is usually between 80-120 bucks, but if you go to a rip-off PC-Shop, then you could get charged something like 350 bucks, even that it's max 15-30min work.

    Doesn't that screen come with it? Or is it seperate from the screen?

    Thanks @Ton

    That should be the whole LCD-Unit, but without a bezel. I never bought it in a different way.
