Specs: Windows XP
I have a 'plaid' corner...horizontal and vertical lines. this seems to be in front of the curser. Do I have to replace the screen? It is getting bigger. Right now it is about 3"x3".

Usually bad screens don't have "patterns", they get dead or discolored Pixels but not in distinct patterns. I would think this is more likely to be a failing graphics chip. Some notebook models are notorious for this (HP, Toshiba.) If you can plug in an external monitor do you still see the Plaid Pattern? If not, then it probably is the screen itself. If it is still there it is the graphics chip.
