Re: Scratches on screen
If it is a soft plastic screen, you may be out of luck.
If it is firm to the touch, you may be able to polish them out with jeweler's rouge or really old toothpaste; the modern stuff has soluble crystals, not grit as 20 years ago.

There are many ways to remove the scratches also the cover up the scratches.In order to remove them i have heard that toothpaste does the trick.Apply the toothpaste on the scratches then leave to dry in warm water for 30-40 minutes.
Or you can borrow another copy of the game from a friend and install it on your hard drive then when you put your original game in the scratches become useless.
Sound like your monitor is about to go out. Try a different monitor to make sure. Borrow one from a relative, friend, neighbor or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor does ok without the scratches and lines, then your original monitor is going bad. If the borrowed monitor does the same thing, then your video card inside the computer is going bad.
You can use a white eraser. Yes a pencil eraser. It will take several minutes. Cleanup with a moist cloth. This should remove the shallow scratches. On deeper scratches some people have used petroleum gel like Vasoline® to fill the scratches.
Here are some solutions to consider. Try in an inconspicuous place first.
1) Use a clean WHITE pencil eraser. Yes WHITE pencil eraser. Some people use a pink eraser and then a white eraser over that for faster removal. Wipe residue off with a damp cloth. 2) Use White Petroleum VaselineJelly over the stratches. This may have to stay on an hour before wiping off.
3)You may also get commercial LCD scratch removers on the 'net.
An LCD screen should only be cleaned by using a damp(not wet) with water microfine cloth. Never use household cleaners of any kind.
Easiest solution is the stuff you buy to fix your glasses with (Lens cpr), so long as it's a small scratch. Larger scratches don't try to fix you can damage the screen further.
Other solutions (though I recommend only at your own risk) Vaseline Method Clean the surface of the screen. Take some Vaseline and fill the scratch with it. Gently wipe off the excess Vaseline, being careful not to press too deeply so as to leave some inside the scratch. Voila. This works because the optical density more closely matches the LCD face than air.
Pencil Eraser Method Find a pencil with a clean, soft eraser. It must have no pencil graphite on it as you won't want to smudge that on your monitor. Lightly rub the eraser over the scratch or nick on the screen. Keep rubbing until the scratch completely disappears .
If by scratches, you mean dark pencil thin lines running across the screen horizontally, then you could have a bad display. If it's under 3 years old it "could" still be in warranty. Otherwise, a new set is probably in order for you.
