Sorry, I do not know if this topic relates to internal hardware, please move thread if needed.

I used water to clean my computer screen but I didn't wipe off the water off the screen!
I thought it will dry off (without dripping inside the inner sections).

Now... my screen has water stains in them and I cannot remove them!! What should I do??!? Please respond asap.

Sorry, just gotta ask. Are the water stains on the inside or outside of the screen? Is this a laptop?

they make screen cleaner wipes, you can purchase them at your local computer store and even wal-mart, purchase them and wipe off with them. If you can't find them, alchohol wipes work to.

If the water stains are inside the LCD screen itself that is a problem. Laptop or Desktop?
A LCD screen (Includes LED screens) is made up of layers. If the water got between the layers that will be very tough to fix as it would require disassembling the LCD panel itself.

I did find this for a laptop screen.
How I took apart and repaired my notebook LCD screen with water damage

Yesterday took apart and repaired my notebook LCD screen with water damage. The screen itself was working just fine but it had two different problems.

- previous owner spilled water on the laptop. Somehow the water got inside the LCD screen and left stains inside the screen. The water marks were very noticeable on a white background and it was very irritating.
- the screen also had dust and lint inside also very noticeable on a white background. I have no idea how it got in there but I decided to clean it up too.

If this is the problem be prepared to replace the LCD since this type of repair is a royal bleep to do properly.

Good Luck
