So I... accidently dropped my ASUS S550CB-CJ065H laptop today and the screen cracked a bit and a bit of the laptop case, I've been calling up many laptop repair centres today and most of them are saying they can't replace the laptop screen as it is a Touch screen laptop, however I don't really use the touch screen and was wondering if the laptop would still work with just a normal LCD screen as one of the repair centres said that the laptop might not be compatible with just normal LCD screens,
thanks :)

led's are powered with dc and you have a led display.
a lcd for backlight has cfl lamps and needs inverter to convert dc to ac.
leds do not need this inverter because they operate with dc curent so you will need to replace with a led display not lcd.if the led display they find does not have touch they should be able to change it.it will work.

its the panle that has been cracked led displays are lcd with led backlighting insted of cfl lamps.the backlighting is ok the screen has cracked.you might be able to find a used one at a refurbished center.it will save you some money but still the replacement does cost quite a bit.

the led backlight is intergrated in the panel/monitor/display.
when you take it for a replacement tell him to try to find a led panel without the touch.he can find one using the serial number on te panel.
