Question Horizontal lines of defective pixels appearing on laptop display

Feb 11, 2023
Hey, I'm new here because my laptop display is acting up and nowhere else online seems to have a straight answer.

As of a week ago, these lines of defective pixels began to appear on my display (which I already had to get replaced a few months back because of a different issue with the display). It started with 1 but has now grown to 8. As you can hopefully see in the photo, they turn on when they display white, but otherwise, they create a dark line across. This does not happen on my external monitor.

My warranty expired back in December, so I would like to avoid another replacement, but worst-case scenario, I'll cave in if I have to, or at this point, get a new one.
