Use a new laptop with a cracked screen on a old laptop

Is the HP still under warranty?
If so then utilize it and have the screen replaced. If not then you can contact HP and maybe purchase a replacement screen.
Be ready for sticker shock.
The motherboard will probably not exchange and connect the same.
I believe once you see the cost of the replacement screen you may just find it is cheaper to purchase a new laptop.
You can however save the data from the HP by purchasing a external 2.5 inch enclosure and then copying the data to the new system.
You also could save some money if you are comfortable enough to replace the screen yourself. This is not something I suggest as the parts for a laptop are extremely smaller and harder to work with.

Keep that in mind Ron, this place is awesome. Actually based out of my home town, just coincidence... found them on ebay not too long ago.
