My macbook has a big line across the screen and it looks like a crack.I recently cleaned it with LCD screan cleaner so i do not know if the cleaner leaked in and it got messed up or if it cracked. I have not recently dropped it so im not sure what to do.
Does it only show up when the computer is on? There were a few reports of several MacBooks having video card issues that caused this problem. Take it to an Apple store and have a Mac Genius look at it to confirm.

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.
well dont fret, sounds like you need a new screen. http://www.screencountry.com/ has them the cheapest ive found. replacing them does take time and alot of screws but is doable. check out http://repair4laptop.org/disassembly_apple.html for instructions on replacing the screen for your specfic model. please take care when replacing the screen, there are alot of small part and screws. be sure to work at a clean table and make sure you have a couple hours to do it all at once. I did mine in two days and ended up with 7 extra screws when i was done :)
Sounds like dropped pixels. My first guess is the computer has been dropped on its corner, with the pixel dropout radiating diagonally from the corner.
My saint bernard sat on my g3 lombard, and I have vertical pixel dropout because of it, from the top of the screen to the bottom.
And no, it is not normal for a macbook to have lines across the screen.
Uh-Oh.. Sounds like the BGA RAM in the video circuit. (These units are Intel based and Core 2 duo if posted correct).. We can repair if you need help and its under warranty and sorry its not a home remedy situation..
You will have to invoke the warranty to get this answer They will either fix under warranty or name a price if it was deemed to be out side the warranty Un;s any one here has personal experience, could the 'how much' element of your query could be answered
