Solved: White rectangle on Laptop screen
My laptop screen has suddenly developed a white rectangle in the middle. It is 1cm high, and 3cm across. I cannot get rid of it. Is this bad news, or is there anything I can do about it?

Is it visible only on the desktop background? Or if you open a Window is it visible on top of the window? Also, is your desktop background a picture or solid color?

Thank you for your quick reply. The white rectangle is only visible on the Desktop background. Allan.

Right click on your desktop and click Properties then the Desktop tab. Do you see a choice for Background that would be the white rectangle?

If that's not it, click the Customize Desktop button, then the Web tab. Under Webpages there should only be one item (My current home page) unless you added some other items. Highlight any other items you didn't add and click Delete.

Thank you again. I cannot find anything under your first paragraph.
Is the Customise Desktop button the Personalise tab on the rt click drop-down. If not, I cannot find it. I cannot find Web tab anywhere. Allan.
