Do I need to replace my LCD screen, digitizer, or both?

Do I need to replace my LCD screen, digitizer, or both?

My Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has sustained a few cracks. I was able to power it on, but then the touch screen became unresponsive to my touch, although it appears to touch by itself (in the areas where the cracks are). I am planning on replacing the LCD display, but I would like to avoid replacing the digitizer. Do you think that the digitizer needs to be replaced?

Please, dont mess with any other parts when replacing the screen. Ive found so many folks changing digitizers and h*ll only knows just to change a broken screen and are at a loss why the device fails to work corectly. Ive changed several sreens and never a digitizer or what ever and never a blip on my device.

If your touch screen became unresponsive, then the digitizer got some problems and you need to replace it.

I have a Surface Pro 3 / i5 @1.9GHz. My screen crack and the mouse started to move on its own. I disable the touch screen functionality on the device manager. I'm planning to replace the screen. I want to know which screen size or parts should I get. There's so many on Amazon that get confuse. I have not open the damage screen to see the model number but my device manager tells me i have a version 1703. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
