Hey. For those of you who follow my life like that of a soap opera, you already know that there is a hair on the inside of my laptop screen. It is slowly creeping further up the screen. Even though the screen still works, it is driving me crazy!!!! :thumbsup:
I have an extended warrenty at best buy. However, since the screen still works, they may not repair it.

My question is this; if not, is there a way I can get it out myself? Like, maybe somehow open the case just enough to let it fall out? If the warrenty does not cover it, my parents will not pay for it ("but, but you can barely see it!" Of course they say that; they are not the ones who have to look at it all the time!!!).

I have a Toshiba Satelitte A-65 model. Any thoughts at all will be appreciated.

Taking the screenon is not hard, i just takes time and patients. The problem you may run into is if you danage something it will void your warranty. If it were me I would go for it. You will need very small + head screw driver. You will have 4 to 6 different screw sizes.Just be careful they go back in the same place.
