My HP Compaq nw8440 laptop screen has started to turn reddish from the bottom left corner and up the left side. When I turn it on, about one third of the screen on the left has a reddish tone, but it gets better as the screen ‘warms up’, then only about 10% and a little more in the bottom left corner are affected.
The left is the ‘hot’ side of the laptop, as this is where the CPU and fan sit, right up by the screen. The fan has been cleaned and the surface hasn’t become very hot since, but the decay has started I guess.
Is there anything I can do to slow this down? Is the screen sentenced to death or is there a chance that it won’t get much worse? What is the possibility that it will stop working suddenly, i.e. should I prepare and get a TFT instantly?
Thank you very much for your help in advance!
