Well you can replace them, but it would cost more then just replacing
the panel (Some panels can cost as much as $1000 PLUS labor for the repair). I suggest anger management classes first, then when you've
successfully graduated, you get a new one from FutureShop/BestBuy/Etc.

If you mean broken as in it has a crack, it has liquid effect leak or dark then yes you have a broken lcd
Replacing is not a difficult as it seems, mainly by removing a few screws around the frame hidding under the rubber pads, then sometime you also need to remove the keyboard/power control panel, then its jsut a case of removing the broken lcd and buying a replacement panel and fitting it. heres me taking a panel out on another laptop but gives you the idea. If your in London, then I can do the repair for, cost of parts + 20pounds + return delivery costs.

The previous LCD replacement, was it a manufacturers defect, or broken accidentally?
Is this failure a manufacturer's defect or accidental damage?
If the system is under warranty, any defect failure is covered.
If the system has complete care accident damage coverage, accidental damage is covered.
If the system is OUT of Warranty, and it is a manufacturer's defect, it should be covered as repair parts are covered for 90 days or the length of the warranty, whichever is longer.
If accidental damage and out of warranty, you pay for repairs
check the panel to make sure the panels are the same model number there are more then one part number for gateway lcds for your model and if your laptop uses the xga screen and your not replacing with the correct panel then you will get the problem you are seeing now.even thought the inverter and back light are the same the panel are very differant.
your laptop trouble mostly cause disconnection between motherboard LCD signal output socket to the lcd panel driver board(at back of panel there is a board at top of back panel. there are two posible repair:
1) check disconnection parts like LCD signal cable between motherboard and LCD panel and all plugs sockets around there. it could be fixed.
2) LVDS decode and driver board damage or matrix rubber cable disconnected they all tough to repair, so that is only easy way to change a new LCD panel finally
it this helpful please feed back thanks
normally with vertical stripes it can happen due to
1.a bad LCD (small little chip inside LCD and can't manual repair)
2.a loose connection cable
so here what I do is first I try to tab at then back of the LCD and see that the problem goes away or not.If yes then a loose connection.
if no what I would do here ,coz I have a spare LCD I just exchange to test it...if the problem goes away then a BAD LCD.
Incase of verticle line due to bad LCD you can't repair it trust me.All the small IC chips are blended with board and can't really be repair.More quesiton feel free to post here.
