    This is an urgent question: I need to know if a Dell LT screen is repairable.

    I closed it on something and the screen is all messed up.

    It depends on the damage. Usually, if its a backlight problem, it can be repaired. If it's cracked or damaged similarly, it will probably require replacement. Take his with a grain of salt since I'm not a specialist at anything but offering opinions LOL

    Send it in and they'll fix it or replace it. Dell is pretty good about stuff like that.

    I closed it on a mouse. Lovely black cracked-spot in the upper right hand corner and hairline cracks radiating from there throughout the screen. The picture is gone, except there's a 1" X 2" area in the upper left corner where I can almost make out the background picture.

    I'm gonna' send it in.

    Sounds like a cracked LCD, the only cure for that is to replace the LCD.
    do you have it under dells coverage? If so. just send it to them they will fix.
    if not PM me with the make and model info and i will see what i can do.
    I have some contacts in Dell that i might can get a screen from.

    Can't. Not mine. It's been fixed.

    I wanted to do that with the last one(s) we got rid of and he wouldn't let me kill them. :(

    To me; nothing says "clean hard drive" like a little lead :D
