    Hi All,

    I have a piece of hair on the top right hand corner of my thinkpad screen. Seems to be stuck behind the top layer of plastic. Im very anal about these things and it is getting to me. Is there any way to remove the hair or is it better to take to a laptop repair store?

    Cheers
    Jeremy

    If you know which hole it got through in the first place, you may be able to insert something thin in that hole to get it out. Couldn't you? o_O

    LOL Carver, you made me laugh soooo much! :D I think though, he gave me an idea, why don't you get a sucking thing, one of those things you press and then the air comes out, you let go and it sucks, or something like that, you know those thin ones, and suck it through the hole?

    You would have to plug the other holes first and the suction would have to be very strong.
