Yellow colour in the top corners of the screen

In the top left and top right corners of my laptop screen there are faint yellow circles about half a cm in diameter, as if the yellow pixels are stuck on. They blend in with what ever is meant to be dispalyed. If I rub the screen they seem to move/fade for a moment then come back. They never use to be there and seem to be getting more prominent as time passes. Seen some messages about ghosting but don't think this is a similar issue as they are there constantly.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

You have a faulty LCD.

yea that's exactly what I've got on both top right and left. I'll get round to asking for it to be fixed in the next few days. Thanks for the feedback

Re: Yellow colour in the top corners of the screen

I read your post and I have the same issue. I was wondering if you have had the screen repaired? My spot is getting bigger and the ghosting is getting worse. I am in medical school and I will be in trouble if this thing goes down on me. I will also be in trouble if the total repair turn around takes more than two weeks.

All,

 

Lead_org is right that the solution would be to change the LCD - if you also have the ghosting, it should all be taken care of with a replacement LCD.
