It's hard to tell from the image, but it seems like the methylated spirit damaged the coating on the screen. Do you know if it has an anti-reflective coating on it? The stuff is pretty corrosive but it usually won't cause issues in very minute quantities but it remains a solvent. I don't think it actually damaged the LCD screen behind it but rather the glass's top layer of whatever it is, likely plastic film.
Sorry to see this happen to you, I am only guessing, but it would probably require an RMA to replace. I know this is not the advice you need right now, but as final note on cleaning, I prefer to use 70% isopropanol rubbing alcohol myself. Requires a bit more scrubbing but also cuts through all the grime while being a disinfectant and evaporates.

Oh man, yep. Probably not the advice I needed at this point. But thank you for the response and this has been a very harsh lesson learned. I will use more preferred cleaning methods the next time. I think I will continue using the laptop as it is, the damage is not really that bad as I think.
Thank you otherwise I appreciate it.
