There is no separate screen glass; the display panel is one piece and needs to be replaced that way. It's actually that way in every laptop, which is why some vendors sell protective covers for laptop screens. So the Acer rep is not giving you the runaround. It's not difficult to change the display yourself if you want to try it. It just involves removing a lot of small screws, and there are how-to sites and videos online. A new display is around $150 (and may be available for less from vendors of used parts).
Laptop screens are LCD (liquid Crystal Display, most laptop screen are made up of 5-7 layers with the LCD plate in the back all bound together in an aluminum frame with the backlight installed on the bottom to light the LCD up. Thses can be disassembled and the inner plate replaced, but it is cheaper to just replace the whole unit.
No..the Glass Display Panel ... If cracked... Cannot be repaired.. it is not just a piece of glass, it is a layered panel with pixel grid panels along the top and sides that show color to the grid on the screen panel and go all throughout the display ..
If the Crack ocured behind the display panel on the plexiglass protective panel, that can be replaced... but No Not The Front LCD Display Panel.
