This could be due to a bad video card, but is much more likely to be a problem with your screen itself. What you described is likely to be caused by damaged or dead pixels in the screen. The cost of one is usually about half of the cost of the laptop itself, so you may want to consider buying a new laptop and salvage your data and other usable parts from this one.

Hp pavilion dx6 laptop screen. there's blotches on the center of screen, is it the screen itself or something wrong in the video card?


If the blotches never move when you change applications, then the screen is faulty. Screens can be found online and you might be able to find a You Tube video showing you how to change it. Just google replacement laptop screens and you'll find many places to get a new one.

Spot in center of screen, if the color pictureis black the spot is blue, if the picture is white the spot is yellow.


Spots in screen is commonly caused by defective LCD on the optical assembly. LCD replacement is very difficult. I suggest to contact the nearest service center at your area.

Macbook screen blotches


If you go to turn on your laptop and loads to your os and the spots on the screen remain there then most likely you have ruptured the liquid crystals in the screen by pressing too hard when you were cleaning the screen with the computer off. you could lightly touch the black spots with your finger and if it displaces the black with a white halo effect around your finger (DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD OR WITH FINGERNAILS DIRECTLY ON THE SCREEN) then it will mean that you will have to replace the screen because it has busted the crystals definately.

Dark Blotches


This is probably caused by dust, either on the mirror, lens, or possibly inside the light engine. There is a 5" dia hole on the side of the back of the tv where you can take out one screw and take the door off. this is just big enough for you to put your hand through to clean the mirror and lens. Hope this helps.

Screen spot


Since you have a black spot,you need to look at the mirror or inside screen. If it were a certain color, like purple or yellow, for instance, I would suggest a lens or picture tube, but, since it is black in one spot, I would suspect debris in those areas.
