    My 2 yr old got ahold of a ballpoint pen and made her way up to my powerbook and did a coupld of very small doodles on my screen...

    Anyone know how to get these off the screen?

    looking through rose-tinted spectacles...
    Nailpolish remover works on other ink stains, followed by a good cleaning with water to remove the acetone. Not sure how your PB screen would react to it.

    Good luck!

    When I saw "ink" on the title, I hoped for your sake that it was a marker -- or even a fountain pen.

    Ballpoints generally take a lot of pressure to write, so even if you can get the ink off, you may find that the screen has been damaged by the pressure.

    I doubt the screen has been marred, Its very light - almost unnoticeable except for when the screen has a white background...

    I tried luck
