    You're going to be taking apart quite a bit of your laptop, and I normally advise against such things.  Especially with it being a fairly new laptop, you might need your warranty at some point.  However, the steps involved in replacing the screen are fairly straight forward, here's a link to doing one:

    The laptop on that site is a Mac Book so I'm not sure what physical differences there will be between it and yours (I would think yours would be easier to get in to) but the general premise is still the same.  Remove the case, detach connections, replace screen, etc...

    Let me know if this is going to be of any help to you.
