Screen-scratch, plastic cover or time to change it?

Hello after a while.
Now I am working on Samsung np rv410, 14" laptop,4GB DDR3...altogether nothing specialbut good for me for everyday stuff.
Since I got it, it has some kind of scratches on screen but it didn't bother me for a while because I got it really cheap without 2GB of RAM when it was really slooooow for 35us$ ( everything else is ok).

I am not to good in dissassembling things so the easiest way for me is to show the situation on pics.(I am really not sure if it's on LED, or on cover glass if it has or something third under cover)

So any sugestion what to do to get it back to full functional condition is more then welcome...
Thanks in advance
Drazen

How come you have it on the fist image and don't on the second?

The black clouds on first image is normally due to mechanical pressure on the display. As it has liquid beneath the plastic cover, it damage the display. I don't understand why it isn't on the second image.

Megahertz07 may be right, that there is internal damage to the screen but, in the case where it is scratched only on the outer layer, you might try some kind of a mild abrasive compound, such as toothpaste, and use it to buff out the scratches.

I believe first pick was from camera second one from screen shot. Which would indicate the screen itself would need to be changed.

You're right. First one is from camera, and the other one is screenshot where I just wanted to show that it is not the area of the screen which shows artefacts but real scratsh, and if you just move a pic slightly left everything is visible.
So my question is do I have to change whole LED screen, or there is maybe something like a tiny(narrow) plastic cover on LED what could be changed instead ?
Thank you on your answers anyway

Can you feel the scratches? I believe the whole screen will have to be changed.

No, everything is shiny as if it's new, only those dark spots lije somebody used a pen but didn't fill it completely. I can't feel.thetiniest sceatch under my finger, and I can actually see through those "marks" if I really try.

Hi

LCD Screen replacement is not cheap.

There is a need to specify correctly what had done to become like that.

And how long and who make the scratches.

There are certain screen wipes that can clean the screen, without damaging it.

Without such info, it is not easy to remove, as if apply the wrong material to wipe it, it may damage the screen itself.


Eric.

Normally this dark clouds are related to papers that has been putted over the keyboard an then closed the cover (screen).
As it is an internal damage, I would say that you will have to replace the screen. And as Eric said, it isn't cheap (screen+labor).
