If you put a screen protector on it, it will diminish the look of the scratch.

Not really. You're pretty much screwed ;[ You'll have to bite the bullet and get a replacement screen, or scavange ebay for a dead camera with a good screen. Good luck

I try to change my computer monitor settings but they won't change. why?

You should be able to click Start/Control Panel and then look for Display or Display and Personalization.When it opens up select the Settings tab and click on 1 to select your lcd display. There should be two numbers 1 for lcd and 2 for external monitor.

You might be able to do it by keystrokes on your keyboard. Normally you can Press and Hold the FN function key at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the key that toggles the display. The key that toggles the display will normally have LCD/CRT on it or it might have the icon of a display. It toggles between 3 modes (LCD Only, CRT Only or Both LCD and external CRT).

You could try reinstalling your Video Drivers but you would need to be in Safe Mode With Networking to give you internet connectivity. When it boots up open your internet browser and download and install the Video Drivers.

Get online and got to In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Video drivers.

If all fails you could do a System Restore to a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having the problem. Don't worry, System Restore does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a date and time (Restore Point) that was before you started having problems.

My touchscreen on my new sony tx7 camera got scratched in my handbag, and the indent is interfering with anything i try to there anything i can do? is it possible to replace the screen?


I'm sorry to hear that the new DSC-TX7 Camera screen got scratched. You can get the screen replaced with the help of a service technician. Changing the LCD screen of the Camera is bit expensive. Contact the Service Technician to check if the screen requires a replacement or the entire LCD screen. I suggest you to use a screen protector (scratch guard) which is available with the SonyStore. This will help you in avaoiding scratches on the screen.

Displayscreen scratched on ge e850

Most likely you cannot. I recommend calling support. If you have warrenty on the product, they may give you a new screen, but since it's accidental damage, they may not.

Polaroid FLM-2601 flat screen

It has a protective outer screen and depending on the depth of the scratch you might be able to restore it. You'll need to look on-line at a few aircraft site for a kit that is meant to polish scratches from the plexi in an aircraft windshield. There is a company in Oregon
that sells the kit for 34.95....
It is time consuming but I have restored many this way!
