My computer screen has a black circle at the top left corner

I splashed a little water on my computer screen one night and of course there are some bad spots at the bottom of the screen where the water actually touched it. But a day later a black circle appeared at the top left corner opposite where the water splashed. Does anyone know why and is there anything I can do?

I have the same exact problem

I have the same exact problem!!! I accidentally got water on my screen a couple days ago, turned the computer on the next day and there was a large black circle in the upper left corner of my monitor. And it seems to be growing slightly larger everyday!

Did you end up getting any help with this??????

Please let me know, as this is a work computer and not my own personal property :/

Thank you!!

your computer screen get wet

your computer screen get wet sir.

it seems that the water penetrate inside.

as a cellphone technician, my solution there is to wipe the screen rapidly it takes long to do this. but that is the only solution that i know to dry the water inside the screen.

i hope it helps u for my comment. thanks..

I have the black dots too!!!

I have the black dots too!!! And they are growing!! At first I had only two. Now there are five!! And there are black growths at the bottom of the screen that look like they are going to grow into more black circles. I am not sure if this is water. Not that I know anything about hardware. Mackie28 I tried to rub the screen as you suggested. I am lost. I am starting to think this is a defect in my dell laptop. Any more suggestions out there??

I told her NO! Do NOT clean

I told her NO! Do NOT clean the monitor when you clean up the house. But what did I see on my monitor? - that's right - water streaks. And the next day, budding purple and green lines began to grow on the lower right hand side of the monitor like those magic crystals you throw into a small bowl of water. Then like a slow motion nuclear explosion, a black ball began to grow eclipsing the lines and it hasn't stopped growing.

I'm not sure if I want to try wiping the screen rapidly, I might try a hair dryer. If that doesn't work I will try rubbing it. If that doesn't work I'll try fixing it by buying a new monitor.... :/

If its an LCD screen you have

If its an LCD screen you have dead pixils the only real fix is to replace the screen.

I don't have black spots but

I don't have black spots but I have cracks that have spread. Is this something that I can do or do I need a professional? What about replacement cost? Any thoughts?
