That's not true. I replaced my laptop screen for $120. my laptop cost close to $700. (Asus EEE PC900) you can go to smartmicrousa.com or call them and ask if they have the screen you need. they had mine and I looked for MONTHS before I found this place. Supprizing enough it wasnt hard to replace AT ALL. You can look up how to replace a laptop screen on you tube. That's how i did it, so dont go buy another laptop just fix yours. Good luck : )

Anger managemnt classes might help, though owning a computer it will never stick for long hehe

Seriously though, when an LCD is damaged due to impacts etc, then there is only one repair method, replace the LCD. If the screen is still in a working condition, then thank your lucky stars.
If it is still running apart from the white dot, the best thing to do is to learn to live with it if possible, depending on the size of the dot of course. Laptop screens can cost nearly as much as the laptop to have replaced. You may get lucky and be able to find a laptop on eBay to salvage a screen from.

Sorry for the bad news.

What you have is a cracked screen. The LCD panel is cracked and is leaking fluids to the rest of your screen, those dots will spread too. This happens when u pick up the computer from the screen. You could try finding a replacement laptop screen, or get a new computer. They aren't that expensive. Make sure you save your hard drive tho!

I HAVE RED DOTS ALL OVER ANY BLACK COLOR OF THE PICTURE


Could be whats known as dead pixels, this is tested be showing up a black or white screen. Microsoft paint or word will do. If an area always has dots then dead pixel. However if it doesn't constantly remain a dot then, some-thing else. Dead pixels come about due to age.
A technician will be able to diagnose your problem by performing white screen test.

What does it mean by dead cells?


I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

Columns of tiny red dots fill my screen


sorry to tell you, I do repairs on LCD screens. And the issue your having is with the lcd part of the whole monitor itself, or the image processor is failing. More often than not, its impossible to find a replacement part to change out in this case. And should you take it to a repair shop, it will cost more to diagnose, order part, and labor repais than if you just got a new one. Hope

Blackspot on screen


is it a tiny black dot? about one pixel? That is whats referred to as a dead pixel it happens on LCD nothing can be done of it but to replace the LCD screen. Usually you can just bare with it and wait til there are a few dead pixels before worrying about it.
Thanks,

That dot represent lit (stuck) red sub-pixel and if it only one that is not considerable as failure due to dead pixel warranty but you can try to solve this problem with software called screen fix. It possible that during exploitation that red dot dissapear.
