Youíve told that only a screen has been damaged of your laptop, if your video card has not been damaged, then you can easily connect the external monitor and use it as a laptop screen.

    You can connect an external monitor to your laptop. It is not necessary that you should buy only a acer monitor because youíre laptop is acer. You can use any brand monitor as a external monitor. Your monitor should match the video port with your laptop to use it as a external monitor. If every thing is good then you can easily connect your monitor as a external monitor to your laptop. For connecting you just have to connect with your laptop port and press the fn + f7 key from your laptop to activate the function of external monitor.
