Try hooking your laptop up to a monitor from a desk top computer and see what happens. If you still see the lines, etc... you have a problem with your video display card/driver, if not, the laptop screen is bad or needs repair. You may be able to find a used laptop screen on ebay...
Good Luck.

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.

Screen has black blotches/spots


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.

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.

Could my laptop screen be leaking?


Sounds like the LCD has sustained physical damage. Replacement is the normal solution.

Sony screen discoloration


Assuming this is a CRT monitor.

Try using the Degauss setting on the monitor buttons. You may have to do it a couple of times.

This could be also due to a fluorescent lamp or other monitor too close.

Dark blotches / Dirty behind screen


it could be dust in the mirror or in the optics,in this set if im not mistaken you have acces to the mirror from the back, anywhere from 12-20 screws it sould be easy to remove plastic cover first and the the mirror.this mirror are very delicate you dont want to leave fingr prints on it it will show just like the dust is showing right know. taking the mirror off will also give acces to the lense.
use someting soft to clean it.

Dark blotches behind the screen


When I had this problem with my 52525 I cleaned the bulb with a lint free cloth. The dark blotches went away.
