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 is the secret to minesweeper


First you open up minesweeper, type xyzzy in caps,and then you should see a tiny white pixel on the top left corner of your screen.(not the minesweeper screen.)look closely on you will see it. If the dot is white, it is safe to click, if it is not white, it is a mine.

Its a DLP chip Basically its alot of super tiny mirrors that open and close at various times to produce the image.

I have little white dots showing up on my screen the size of pin holes. I just replaced the bulb 2 months ago.


You need a new dlp chip. The tiny Micro mirrors inside of it are getting stuck and there is no way of freeing them. You can either buy a new light engine which is very expensive or buy a new DLP chip and change it yourself. It takes about 30 minutes to do and is very easy. I have the DLP chip for $225 new. Other places will charge you about $345. tharizen@yahoo.com

The display on my L675 S7048 is flickering badly. My whites turn pink, and my blues turn green. I see it when windows starts, even the Microsoft logo has tiny green dots all around it. When I connect an...


WHITE is a mixture of the three "primary" colours.
If one of the colours is not working, then WHITE turns PINK.

So, either your LCD display is malfunctioning,
or the "data" cable between the LCD and the motherboard is malfunctioning (not transmitting all 3 signals),
or the video-card embedded into the motherboard is malfunctioning (not sending all 3 signals).

This is nothing that you can fix by yourself; take your computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting and repair.

White "press dot" screen


The actual answer is to press the dots, but use a dull plastic tool that fits "within" the dot. Otherwise the width of your finger is too imprecise to calibrate the dots and screen.

Hope you, and others, get this and try it. It works. I just discovered it and did it, successfully after only about 10 presses.

White dot on my samsung DLP 42" screen


Hi,
white dot is from a failure in the dlp chip. it controls 1000s of tiny mirrors which help make up your pix, when the mirrors get stuck a white dot appears. over time more will pop up. Probably in the $300-$500 range to have someone repair.

Horizontal Lines on a LN-S3241D


i'm sorry to say It's most likely broken. I think the LCD screen is going. Try calling up Samsung to see if they can fix it or repair it for cheap. Good Luck.

There are tiny black dots on my LG Vantage screen


I have the same thing too. My guess is that some of your MEGApixels (tiny squares that create your screen) Are fried.
