Specs: Windows XP
I have a refurb. Latitude that has a blue splat kind of like an ink blotch on the screen. Will this cause any problems?

Is this an actual ink blot or an appearance of an ink blot when the computer is powered on?

If it's actual ink, you should remove it. Otherwise, the ink chemicals could cause permanent damage, if it hasn't already.

If it's an appearance issue (caused by LCD panel problems,) it won't hurt anything, and the computer itself will operate fine. The problem may come if the defect grows... which they usually do.

Let us know whether it's actual ink or LCD Panel issue. And, for Pete's sake... don't use harsh solvents on your panel. This will cause more problems than it solves.

It is not ink. It is in the LCD screen it self. I imagine this means that in a short time the screen will go. Is that a given? Thanks for the assistance.
