    We still have CompUSA here in Florida. They recently remodeled the store up the road from me. Much more organized and easier to find things now.

    And I hardly ever get the extended warranty on anything. I've never had the need for it really.

    My laptop stays pretty much stationary on my coffee table. I keep it in my living room so I'm not always confined to the spare bedroom when I want to use a computer. It has not left the coffee table in at least 6 months, so it hasn't been banged around from carrying it or anything. My cat did knock it off the table once earlier this year... maybe that's what caused it. My cat owes me a laptop!

    I haven't had any problems with our laptop, and it's about 4 years old and has traveled all over the place ... from Florida to the Philippines. And constant use by our 13 y/o.

    Did you get the extended warranty on it? I know when we got ours we got a warranty that covers the screen for 5 years. Although, now that COMPUSA is gone, not sure what we would do if something happened now.

    I live in Florida.

    But I've never seen this on any other laptop or LCD computer monitor I've encountered.

    Baffled.

    Do you live in a very humid environment? Could it be moisture seeping in through an old and insecure seal around the edge of the panel?

    It's when its on.

    Ok I managed to get a pic with my iPhone. Look along the edge of the screen, see where it's darker? That's what I mean.

    I'll ask the spousal unit when he gets home. In the meantime, you might want to make sure all your drivers are updated, in case it's a fault with the software. Have you tried emailing or calling the manufacturer's customer support?

    started a topic Laptop Screen Question

    Laptop Screen Question

    I think the screen on my laptop is starting to go. Around the edges it's turning this weird kind of off-white color (it's hard to describe) and it's starting to move inwards a little. Does that mean the screen is getting hinky? My laptop is only a couple years old, so I'm kind of surprised it's doing something like this already.
