Well, simply, I sat on my laptop. I had placed in on my car seat, and forgotton about it when I went to sit in my car. 

 

My Laptop works just fine, there is no damage at all, except very minor cosmetic damage to the display, it almost looks like a small smudge on the screen, it's somewhat difficult to notice, but now that I have noticed it, it's all I see.

 

It's really only visible when dark colors are displayed directly under, which is why I used a black background for the picture to help capture the mark.

 

I'm new to the forums, so I'm not sure which method is best for sharing the picture I took of the cosmetic damage. I attached the image, I'm attempting to embed it, and here's the link: https://i.imgur.com/9iqY1LP.jpg

So - Anything I can do about this? Will replacing the screen fix this/be worth the price? Can I do it myself? Anything else? Thanks!

 

My laptop is an Asus Zenbook UX303LA.

You damaged the panel either live with it or replace it, there is no fix for that sort of thing.  One of my laptops has one white dot smaller than the head of a pin, but like you it is an eye magnet!

I'll second OldPhil.  The panel has been damaged and you're limited on options.  You can live with it, replace it, or use an external monitor.

Thanks for the reply's and thank's for the welcome! (:

 

So - If I did want to replace the panel, is there a specific type of screen replacement I would need to look for? Would just replacing the glass screen fix my issue, and would touchscreen still work properly?

Normally you replace the whole panel and it has to be the same as the one being replaced, partly due to the internal connections.  The bad news is that the panel is one of the more expensive parts to replace in a laptop.

The pic is such poor quality it just looks like a scuff mark. Is it that or a indentation? I had a scuff mark one time on a screen I buffed it out with a Mr Clean magic eraser pad. Good for taking bad stains out of a kitchen counter top with something like red coolaid spilled on it. If it's a indent maybe you can massage it with your thumb a little bit so it aint so bad.

If touch works now then it will work after replacing the LCD panel (given there is no damage caused by dissasembling).

A digitizer registers the touch input (which is between the LCD and user).

My advice is to dissasemble the unit so that one can get the actual part # from the sticker on back of damaged LCD panel before ordering replacement. There can be several revisions due to different hardware configurations.

I just abhor doing things more than once if it can be avoiided....

Well worth trying!
