If its just build up and not the actual screen itself(if its a new one with something like X-black coating that would be it) otherwise you clean monitors with a barely wet soapy cloth and then dry it.

Hey warriorscot,
thanks alot for replying! It's a new laptop but I'm not sure if it has X-black coating. I'm not so sure that soap and water is safe for LCD screens though, I heard that you shouldnt use just water or something?

I've been told that plain water is best for LCD screens. Turn it off before you start cleaning it, and dry it before you turn it back on. I've done this a few times to mine and it looks great.

I wouldnt use window cleaner no, i just use soapy water as it gets stubborn marks of and doesnt run as much as water makes less mess but just water works up to you.

Just dont try and remove the coating on the screen if thats what you have it sometimes looks uneven on screens which makes people think it shouldnt be there.
