Mending Scratches on Laptop Screens

If you have ever had scratches on your laptop screen, you’ll know how frustrating it can be.  Even the smallest scratches can be incredibly distracting when you are trying to work on your laptop.  But scratches on laptop screens are not something that you just have to live with.  Provided you act quickly, it is possible to mend scratches on laptop screens and restore your computer to as good as new.

While it is always best to get a professional to undertake your laptop screen repairs, this can be incredibly expensive, particularly if only minor repairs are needed. Small scratches on laptop screens can easily be repaired yourself.  You will need some petroleum jelly, cotton bud and a soft cloth.  

Dip your cotton bud into the petroleum jelly.  Be careful not to overload the cotton bud with the jelly.  Gently apply the petroleum jelly to the scratch. You should then use your soft cloth to gradually rub the jelly into the screen.  Keep rubbing it in until the scratch blends in with the rest of your screen. If this method doesn’t work for you, you could try using CD cleaner on the scratch. Used sparingly, neither of these liquids will cause damage to your computer.

While this can be a good way to repair scratches on laptop screens, there’s no guarantee that it will work for you.  If your scratches are not repairable, then you may have to replace your laptop’s screen. Replacement laptop screens are inexpensive and simple to install.
