Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

Bright points on my DV4000 Display

\015 Hi thereI bought a DV4000 from a Friend some time ago but i didnt touch it four about 4 Monthes. Yesterday i went to try to repair it and i noticed a bunch of bright white points on the Display that weren't there four Monthes ago. Do you have any Idea why those Bright points appeared from nowhere? Is there a way to repair the Display and make them disappear? In worst case, is there a way to enmask it a little maybe playing with the colors?Please i really need help on this one, i would be very greatfull.Thank youPeter Saints\015

Hey, Picas!
So you have a pixel problem, huh? OK, you said a "bunch" of white points. How big is this bunch? Are they all in 1 area or are they scattered around?
There are a couple of things that you can do that may help. First, you can try to massage them away. You find a cloth that is soft enough that it won't scratch the face of the LCD. Then you wrap this around you finger, press somewhat firmly and "massage" the area where the problem pixels are located. Some people use a quarter rather than their finger.
The second thing that you could try is to run a screen exerciser that I found online. But, I don't remember where I got it. If you send me your e-mail address, I'd be happy to sent it to you. It's a small exe file that lets you do a number of things to your screen, and supposedly will help by repairing pixels. I've not had a chance to try fixing pixels with it yet, but have used it for other purposes.
