View Full Version : Screen problem

11-02-2012, 09:58 AM
Hello, I seem to be having some sort of a problem with the screen of my G55VW-DS71. There's some kind of a black smudge/shadow/watermark thats appearing from the upper edge of the screen. It's visible only when the screen is ON though. It's not a physical damage by any means. It can be seen clearly when I use a white background. What could be the problem?
It's more like a creepy shadow actually..
I have attached a snap of the problem. It may not be clear but may give some idea regarding my problem.

not sure if they're stuck or dead pixels.

you can try google for "stuck pixels software" to locate and try the software that can be used to 'fix' stuck pixels, see if they can be fixed. if they're dead pixels, it's best to send it to the point of purchase (for replacement), or RMA.

That my friend is a black hole forming. AKA a batch of pixels that will soon be dead.

Don't get mad. You got to see a black hole form your the envy of every space geek.

Would you say it looks like maybe someone marked the screen with a grease pen? Or maybe like a water spot even?
