Re: broken display screen
Unfortunately the screen can not be fixed only replaced. The replacement cost could easily exceed $250, so it is your call whether or not to have it replaced, Given the cost of new laptops these days, I'd say you are better served putting the $250 toward a new laptop.

You need to remove the front top cover above the keyboard to get to the screws that hold the screen on the laptop, then you may have to remove the keyboard to get to the display cables and possibly disconnect the wireless antenna wires from the bottom of the laptop.
Then unscrew all the screws that hold the screen in place. around 4-6 screws. The screen should be free to move and you can pull it up from the case.
if you have a new panel you will need to open up the old screen cover, unscrew the screws, and use a flat screwdriver or a case opener tool to snap open the cover as its hold closed with plastic clips.
if you have a completely new display you can just slide it in the old ones place, connect the cables and screw the screws back.
if the connector is different do not force the connector, buy the exact same model screen as your old one is, if you bought the wrong display and the connectors don't fit, forceing them in the connectors may ruin the connectors.
your case is the back lights inverter or lamp damage, you have to send to repair, find a laptop hardware specialist to do that, my repair cost (lowest)
1) repair the inverter board if repairable, $50
2) change the new inverter board $80
3) change the lamp $60
