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.

Lenovo z570 black screen at start up

You may like to check the Lenovo (IBM) page on screen diagnostics:

I searched the internet on "no display on laptop" which gave some informative results, but as only you know all the details of what is wrong only you can decide what is relevant.
I found the following interesting, but there are many more:
3. (on the right hand side of this article there are links toother articles about laptop screen problems)

Does your computer beep more than usual when you turn it on ? Tis may be a sign that components are loose or have come out, or there is some fault which must be looked up.

To find out if it's your screen, connect an external monitor via the VGA port on the side of your computer Press the function button to select the external screen, or both, and if you get a display on the external monitor it's your screen or components associated with it, for example the 'inverter' or the CCFL if your computer has one. It may be that the display has become disconnected from the computer (there is often a ribbon connector). It may even be the graphics/video hardware on your mainboard. If it's the screen, you can replace it: detailed instructions for a similar model are here

If this is case you need to disassemble your computer and find out what is wrong with screen. The manuals for your computer can be found here

But you rea;;y need to find out what is wrong before you can even attempt to fix it. If you are not able/knowledgable enough to dissemble your computer, DON'T.

I got some white patches appeared on my led which is very visible in black back ground which is awful my product is sony vaio E series laptop can any one tell me why does those spots appeared

That's called backlight bleed. It's a known issue with certain models of the LED screens. I had a similar issue with my previous laptop, a Lenovo G560. The only solution is to replace the screen.

Black spot appeared on the screen on bottom left side how to clear it

A large black spot usually means the LCD screen is damaged. It may have fine cracks around the black spot. In this case the LCD screen needs to be replaced.

Black sots on screen.growing everyday. already screen has been replaced once due to the same problem..again spots have appeared..wat to do??

Welcome to FixYa!

It maybe just a simple driver issue. For you to be able to verify it, you ill need to access the BIOS to check if the black spots are still there.Please follow these steps,there are different way od going to BIOS depending on the brand of the laptop.
1 Turn on your computer
2 Hold down F2, this will take you into BIOS. On some computers it might be the DEL key, or F1.
If the black spot is not there, you can go ahead and update the driver of the display...
Hope this will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

Black water flow mark on monitor screen of the Lenovo Laptop 3000 C100 series

You would have to disassemble the screen in order to clean it. There are layers in the front of the screen, what you see is where the liquid got in between the layers. Screens can be taken apart, but it's not recommended.
