    Would you care to elaborate? Does the screen light up but there are black spots on it? In that case the screen might be cracked, and thus needs to be replaced.

    And even if it isn't, a LCD shouldn't have black spots. You would still need to replace it (especially if you can see some bright spots, that would deficiently indicate that the screen needs to be replaced).

    When you say the top of the screens, do you mean the corers, or do you mean to the right/left portions of the screens on the respective Macs?

    I actually just pulled that image from a Google search, but now that you mention it, it does look like the "Flyakite OS X" Windows theme. :D
