LCD-related symptoms

The TFT LCD for the notebook computer contains
many thin-film transistors (TFTs). A small number of
dots that are missing, discolored, or always lighted
is characteristic of TFT LCD technology, but
excessive pixel problems can cause viewing
concerns. The LCD should be replaced if the
number of missing, discolored, or lighted dots in any
background is:
v XGA: 8 or more bright dots, 8 or more dark dots,
or a total of 9 or more bright and dark dots.
Note: A bright dot means a pixel is always on
(white or color.) A dark dot means a pixel is
always off (black color.)
