Re: Cracked screen,looks like ink on it.

Try to find the part in an auction (e.g. Ebay) using the exact model number of your laptop. Laptop screens start at $100. To make it worth it though you may need to self-install. There are repair guides online, it's not that hard on Dell at HP laptops. Just remove the front bezel, release LCD plug and backlight plug, remove the defective screen and replace it with the new one, it's almost plug and play. I work for a laptop repair company (Laptop Repair NYC) and we do this replacement frequently in an hour or so.

There is no way to fix an LCD once it has been cracked ;o(
Do you have questions or need assistance in how to replace it?

My computer has reand black lines all over

To determine if the video card or the LCD screen is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop, power up the external monitor first the boot up your laptop. The video data will automatically divert to the external monitor. If the image on the external monitor is normal the the fault is in the LCD screen.
Either way, I suggest you return your laptop to the supplier because it should be still under warranty. If you try to fix it yourself you could void your warranty.

Screen has white line that runs length of screen also has dark spots at bottom that looks like ink .

The white line is problem of the LCD's electronic. The spots are places where the liquid crystal is out of order of it's molecules, result of a shock and/or crack. Both problems cannot be fixed and the LCD screen have to be replaced. Take apart the lid and look the partnumber of the LCD on its back. Find replacement on ebay.

I have a slightly cracked screen in the top right hand corner of my laptop screen, can it be fixed and how much for roughly?

No, it can't be fixed, the lcd screen must be replaced. Including the labor it will cost you more than the netbook is worth so either try to find a sh screen and replace it yourself (just a screwdriver is needed) or just junk it and buy a new one.

It indeed is a fairly easy repair in case of your Acer. However you will need a replacement screen which would cost a lot if you order it new. You might be better off searching ebay for a broken "donor" laptop (make sure it's exactly the same model, as even similar models with same screen dimensions might have different connectors or inverters - I learned the hard way ;)

Good luck,

Hey, My children were fighting over my lap top and one of them slamed it shut not it looks like there is black ink looking substance in the bottom corner, its not cracked but it looks real bad. You can...

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.
