A laptop screen can be replaced but it will not be covered by the Standard Repair Warranty since it's an accidental damage. Moreover if the computer is quite old more than 4-5 years then i guess even HP will not be able to repair it even if you pay for it, since it will be considered an obsolete system. Then the only option would be to get it fixed at a local computer store. LCD screens can be ordered online from 3rd party websites.

See the following document:

HP Notebook PCs - Diagnosing a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) for Damage

 

The Service and Maintenance Guide provides the disassmbly instructions and part numbers, Chapter 5, Page 46

 

Whether the computer is worth the cost, the effort, and the possible damage to other components depends on available of parts, your skill level, and the necessity to fix the system as opposed to replacing it.

 

Assuming the parts are available in your region (or at all), and if this is the only damage to the computer (other components are not affected), the cost to have the repair completed by a qualified HP technician may not be prohibitive.  Take the unit to a trusted Repair House and ask for an estimate.

 

Good Luck.
