    My screen has these yellow spots that are only visible when the screen goes dark. I got this laptop for a couple of months ago.
    To make it easier to understand what I'm talking about, the exact type of yellow screen occurs when bending it vertically. This doesn't happen in all laptops though. If you know what the problem might be, please reply to this afap.

    If you are talking about around the edges of the screen, then that is backlight bleed. It occurs on most all LCD screens (ie: laptops, monitors, TVs, etc.). Some brands and models are worse than others.

    It will also vary from one LCD panel to another; but, the only way to fix it would be to replace the LCD panel.
