I spilled acetone (nail polish remover) on a laptop screen.

This was over a month ago, I wish I got help sooner but I was scared. I haven’t told anyone yet but my friends and they don’t know what to do, and I just found this site today while looking up how to fix my lg tablet. I had a bottle and I didn’t realize it was open so I pick it up and I grabbed it pretty roughly and some spilled into the laptop screen. I panicked because I was afraid I’d be found and get in a lot of trouble, so I just wiped it with paper and tried to message my friend on it and it had a yellow mark in the screen. I shut it down but when I turned it back on, the light was glowing and the screen was black but still lit up a little. It was kind of old, but I think it was a windows 10. Either way it’s been off and sitting in a shelf and I’m not good with technology repairs so I don’t know what to do. I can’t take it anywhere because I’m afraid my parent would find out about it and be upset with me. I’m still really stressed about it.

i told her the computer wasnt working but i didnt explain what happened and she hasnt been paying attention to it, yet ive been looking for ways to fix it. i´m afraid shed seriously hurt me in some way and this is the reason i havent told her. it wasnt my computer it was another family members so i dont know if shed be as mad as if it were her own yet im still afraid to go and admit the truth


Do you have the option of connecting the pc to an external screen via hdmi? This would eliminate the doubts to know if the problem is the screen or not.

If it's the screen, the only solution is to change it.


@oscarsp Nail polish remover is brutal on plastic - it's got damaged plastics and possibly an LCD.


I am a beginner nail tech and I spilled some acetone on my computer and the black stuff off the computer came off and now there’s a big white spot on the computer i don’t know what to do. Please help so I don’t get in trouble.

Of course, in this case, base what you do based on your age, experience and trust in your parents. I chose to take the repairs on myself without permission since I did not trust the response from one side specifically after an authority power trip incident and threw a laptop out on me as “punishment” thinking I’d take it lightly and cave to his absurd authority trips and abuse of it. Guess who realized he screwed up hard later on when he created a permanent boundary ever since? Yes, it remains to this day.

It’s because of that incident why in most cases I was dealing with something that’s mine (in which case, I always settled it with take a hike) I’d repair it myself especially seeing as most of it was old OOW hardware with easily interchanged parts. I sustained it by holding onto older devices that weren't easily repaired (or totaled out cost wise) that way if I needed a part I hopefully had it and purchased based on cross compatibility. Ever since he decided to be that way, I’m firmly in the “beg for forgiveness” camp if the circumstances and skillset match. Part of how I handle answers today is based on that principle if I can tell the OP can potentially handle it.
Note: I don't bother with that in purchasing anymore as an adult; if I want a 4K panel on the replacement laptop and my old one is FHD, I’ll buy the 4K version even if I have to switch brands.

If you can handle it, we need to know what the model number of the device is to get an idea how much the parts you really need will cost - for example if the LCD bezel is mostly intact besides a few small splashes then I would probably leave it be unless it was severely damaged. If it’s severely damaged, then you may want to replace it too.

If you can’t, make sure you discuss it in an environment where everyone will be mature about it and if you have to push back due to poor parental response, then you can do so and defend yourself in the extreme worst case. If it devolves there (hope it doesn’t), stand your ground the moment you do and DO NOT BACK OFF or apologize. If you cave and your reason was legit, then it enables the behavior!

Things happen, and what you did was a silly mistake, but you sometimes have to learn the hard way sadly. Consider this a lesson about things like nail polish remover being particularly bad to keep around devices, unless you do not care, or you can repair it yourself. I've kept it around my equipment, but I never leave it near a laptop for instance… Or at least make sure I can get back up and running, or if it's on the retirement list decide what to do.

First & foremost I am a father of 2.

The bad news: The acetone you spilled on the lcd likely has permanently damaged the screen. Acetone is what nail polish remover is and it’s a paint remover.

The good news: It can likely be repaired which would involve probably changing the screen entirely at this point.

The Dad response: The best course of action for you to take Is to tell your parents exactly what happened, accidents happen and while I can’t promise your parents won’t be upset. I will say that I would be a lot more bent out of shape if my son or daughter didn’t tell me about it until I found it.

Tell your parents address the situation and then you will feel better. It will be fine. What are they gonna do? Take away your birthday?

If you have some specific questions about finding a replacement screen or costs on acquiring one let comment back and I’ll locate you some part links.
