My Macbook Pro fell off the coffee table and there is now a horizontal line about a 3rd of the way down the screen and the bottom and left side has lines. Is this fixable and what would it cost?

Whether it could be repaired and how much it would cost depends on how much damage was done. It is still possible to find replacement screens and cables, despite the fact this model was discontinued in October 2006. Here is one possible source Mac Screen Repair 24 Hour Screen Glass Replacement (shared for informational purposes only.) If there is also damage to the GPU or motherboard, it would make more sense to get another new or refurbished unit. The labor costs to find and fix anything more complicated than the display would be more than the laptop is worth, IMO, and it still wouldn't be reliable.

I've never seen this done-- typically if an display glass panel is damaged/cracked/chipped on a laptop, it's best to replace it.

Hope this helps!

I have a MAC book with a white screen

Try booting into target mode by holding down the T key during start up. If it starts up you can rule out a failed disc drive. If it doesn't start into target disc mode you likely have a failed hard drive. If it starts up into target mode you can try starting it into safe mode by holding down the shift key during start up. This will also run a series of disc repair routines and start up will take some time. Hope this helps.

Your kids have just damaged the screen and that needs to be replaced, the black ink like substance is the liquid crystal which has run, there is now way of repairing that kind of damage apart from replacing the screen. Its doubtful that there is any other damage as you have said in your post that the machine still works fine, i would however check the screen bezel (plastic screen surround) for any cracks that may have developed by slamming it shut.

Broken screen

First off, with most warranties, they will not cover user damage, such as the cracked screen. If they do, they are going to have you send it in for repair. So, most likely you will be without your laptop, until you get home, unless you can get a shipping address where you are. You will need to contact the service site in order to find out.
