I dropped my acer netbook and now the screen is white. I can hook my comp up to another monitor and that works but the acer screen is just white light. Is it an expensive fix?

Take it to a computer shop and let them test the screen. Depending on the model, you may be spending a few hundred bucks on a new screen. – user3463 May 15 '12 at 3:48
If you have the confidence/are out of warranty anyway/feel like experimenting, a cheaper alternative is to buy a panel on e.g. Ebay and fit it yourself. It is not especially difficult to install, and you will spend a lot less money. – Daniel Andersson May 15 '12 at 6:48

Don't panic. Take it to the nearest electronics store and have them look at it.
