lenovo y480 screen border problem?

A few months ago i purchased a lenovo y480 idea pad.[IMG][/IMG]

Overall a great PC and havent had any issues, but the other day i noticed small bubbling around the border. i thought they were simply condensation marks of some sort and would be easily cleaned, well after wiping the marks repeatedly they remained! Infact that are actually under the screen border some how. This laptop hasnt left my room or house, and i baby it. I dont know how these are forming. Please help if you have experienced similar anomaly.
Lenovo i hope you can chime in as well if there is a way to fix this, or something.

here are pics of it

Re: lenovo y480 screen border problem?

hi anewxploration,


Welcome to the Lenovo Community.


Basing from the images, it looks like there's an accumulation of air under one of the LCD sheets (this happens when the LCD goes to a failed polymer layering). An LCD replacement might be imminent unless you don't mind the bubbles on the corner.


See How LCD's Work for reference.



Hope this helps.
