    The front housing of the 9790 contains an integrated touch screen and digitizer (picture below); if the touch screen is impaired by the screen damage, you will need to replace that in any case. You can find what seem to be OEM parts or OEM-quality replacement parts for around 40. If the screen image appears to be ok then the LED may be unaffected, but you'll probably need to remove the front housing to be sure (there are various disassembly videos that go through this in some detail; it's not very different from disassembling any of the earlier 97xx models).
