Having problems with your Dell XPS M1330 Laptop ?

Sudden appearance of line-clusters of dead pixels (?)

\015 I have a Dell M1330 that I bought 18 months ago, and the lcd has always been great.\015\012\015\012I was using it last night at my desk, and hibernated it like i always\015\012do, then this morning (still on my desk open, literally it had not been\015\012moved) started it back up and immediately noticed lines of what look\015\012like dead pixels across the screen.\015\012\015\012They are in line formation (two lines vertically near the centre of the\015\012screen from top to bottom), but both lines are wider (more pixels\015\012involved) about a third of the way down and then taper off to almost no\015\012pixels near the bottom, then right at the bottom the lines come back.\015\012Very weird pattern.\015\012\015\012Different parts of the lines "go away" when different colour images are\015\012behind them, suggesting that only some colour-parts of each pixel are\015\012affected, but the colour differs.\015\012\015\012Also, when I shut the computer down (power totally off), I could\015\012actually see the lines still in the screen reflection from my desk\015\012light, which would suggest physical damge to the screen. I would accept\015\012this if I had dropped the laptop or something but it literally hadn't\015\012been moved during last night (the screen was even left open) and it was\015\012working fine then.\015\012\015\012To give a gauge of the problem - I am having no trouble typing this\015\012question out but at one point had to scroll up because a section near\015\012the top ~1 letter wide was obscured so I scrolled up so that section\015\012was in the bottom of my screen where the line is almost invisible.\015\012\015\012Hope that the long description has provided some clues, any ideas?\015
