Between finding the correct display and the risk of further damaging your laptop I'd say you're pretty much screwed unless your friend offers to pay for the repairs.
You could also go for insurance fraud and say the laptop fell off a table and your friend caught it right before it hit the ground, but the screen got damaged or something similar.
