Ah, I can be clumsy when I can be...I accidently spilt nail varnish remover on my laptop, its working fine but it's affecting the bottom of the screen. What do i do? =(

nothing, as it will have melted it

Normal cleaning is no good for what you have done and you may make things worse

There is probably nothing you can do now. Ethyl acetone will dissolve the screen.

nail polish remover contains Ethyl Acetate if it hasn't melted your screen it very well might...
Technotigers link will be of no use...

worst case is a new screen...

As woodchip says, the damage is most likely permanent. How bad is it?

Technotiger, you cannot be serious :-), G

I must admit to being a big Boobie!!

With apologies to Thrayne - I have never used nail varnish or nail varnish remover! At least, that is my excuse :-)

If its a HP high gloss screen may may have a chance of doing something with, but most are not
