I just got a new (well, refurbished) laptop a couple weeks ago. It's working great, but I just noticed a strange defect on the screen last night. There's a light bar 1 or 2 pixels thick going horizontally across the screen. I can only see it when there's a complex background. It's annoying since it's most visible when I'm watching a video or playing a game. I've tried making the entire screen one solid color, and it's not visible regardless of what color I use, including black and white.

Anyone know if this is fixable?

Come to the board in my profile for random discussion. Though mainly anime.

are you able to return it? sounds like a faulty display. if not replacement panels can be had for 60-150 bucks.

Yeah, but I'd rather not since I don't want to deal with transferring files and setting up all over again. :\

You don't have to do any of that if you just change the screen.

I would also have to guess that the display is faulty.
