Too cut a long story short. I got a few drops of oil on the screen and they ran down into the plastic groove. I removed as much as I could and I now have black sploches inside the screen across the start bar and they are getting bigger and higher.It is an ASUS VW193.Any constructive ideas on the removal of oil would be appreciated. :)

Yes it has a three year warranty but this is not covered... I checked. I have googled every thing and I have seen how they are taken apart but not confident in doing this even though I have done an LCD screen in a mobile phone. I thought there might be a way of just getting to the screen without taking the whole thing to bits as I could not find one for this ASUS. wo`uld be okay taking it out of the case but not taking it too bits :)

Seems like the oil has penetrated into the LCD screen. You may have to disassemble it and get an absorbant filter paper to wicker it out if you are not able to remove it from the outside of the screen. LCD cleaner will only work on the surface. You may wish to ask the experts regarding this issue. Hope this helps.
