    LCD Display on laptop.. Fault?


    Hi everyone, I'm new to Linux forums!

    I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem with their laptop display. I have just installed a new screen on my Fujitsu laptop after my old one was cracked. The new display has a white patch on the top just at the edge. It looks like backlight bleed but its only in one place, I think its from a fault in the frame.

    Is this something that will get worse?

    Without seeing the system I cannot tell you. Can you post a photo of the problem display?

    I've attached a photo, but it doesn't show up too well. It's just the light spot on the top of the screen. Sorry about the low quality of the photo, but at least it shows where abouts the light patch is..

    Thanks

    Assuming you are correct about it being a backlight bleed because of some problem with the frame, it will not likely get worse. Who did the repair?

    Yeah unfortunately, it was my own amateur repair, hence the worry about the poor maintenance work!

    Thanks for the help!

    Press Alt+Ctrl+F3.
    Does it drop you at command line prompt? If yes then you have to configure xorg.conf file again.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Just as long as you didn't have any leftover pixels laying around...
