    Firstly i have not turned on my pc screen for like 10 days because i was not at home. Before that there wasn't any problem. Right now i turn on my pc for the first time after 10 days and there's a huge bright spot below while the rest of the screen is dimmer. What is going on?

    It's a HD screen from samsung 1920 x 1200 res 24 inches i bought it in 2009 and it got repaired before while it was under warranty.

    Can someone tell me what's going on with the screen?

    Looks maybe like water / moisture damage

    Was the house cold while you were away?

    Maybe condensation built up when it was turned on cold without letting it warm up with the house first ?

    my initial thought is condensation, damp patch. is your room damp? any chance someone spilt something on the screen since you last used it? On the bright side, you can buy a 24" TN panel for around £100 nowadays, so not too bad. Or take this as an excuse to upgrade to a nice korean :)

    unlikely i live in the tropics and i don't share the room with anyone so nobody could have turned up the air con while i was away from home but then again i don't know but no way air con could have done that.

    It's so glaringly bright but other than that it looks ok. The rest of the screen looks dimmer though.
