    I would just live with the screen if it was my computer because if that only shows up when there is a white screen then it should not be a problem. But if it makes you happy... it's your computer!

    To give an update on this:

    I received a very nice like new red lid lcd screen off of Ebay($108), installed it, and it looks mint. It took about one hour start to finish, pretty easy job.
    I removed the LCD Lid Back Cover Panel on the old screen, to swap over because the new screen i received was red while i have the silver lid, and what did i find?

    Water Damage! This laptop had water damage! It also explains why the service tag does not line up, as the motherboard, cpu, graphics, hard drive and ram were replaced with upgraded parts, from a newer R2. Im assuming this is also why the "G" key does not work on keyboard.
    Speaking of keyboard, both US-Keyboard, and Notebookpartsshop are out of this keyboard. I see a couple on Ebay for $87.... Seems pretty steep for a keyboard.... Any one have any other suggestions? I'm finding out they are super hard to find.... and the ones you do find, the prices are crazy..
    Thanks!!
