computer problems. help?

ok so my computer screen got this pin sized nick on the screen (i suspect my brother or his cat....) and then that turned into a crack which spread massively and now theres black smudges on the screen (dying pixels i assume? sorry for the ignorance but im not good with computers). im guessing im f**ked but i figured id ask, is there ANYTHING i can do?

thanks guys

Stationary computer or a notebook? If it's a stationary, get a new screen. If it's a notebook, get a new computer. And get a cage for your brother/cat.

Well i checked the specs on your notebook and i see it has a VGA output. You could always hook it up to an external monitor. Even those old cheap dinosaurs. Im sure you could pick one up cheap no more than 10 to 20 bucks on Craigslist. Or if your tv is fancy enough, hook it up to there. Thats what i do with everything
