    I have a HP LP2475W monitor and theres a small (1cm long) scratch in top right corner, its hardly visible, most ppl prob wont see it, I only can at certain times when looking for it, but I know its there and it annoys me, is there any way to polish out or fill minor surface scratches anyone know?

    I had a scratch on my Dell Ultrasharp 2407WFP a while back which was really bugging me.

    I managed to make it less noticeable by using some vaseline of all things.

    Posted on a forum (possibly here even!) and this was the recommendation - try it, see how it works for you. It certainly helped mine but it was still visible (just) and I had to redo it every month or so.

    Hope this helps!

    A clean pencil eraser, preferably white.
    Work it along the scratch.
    Worked on my old monitor, with no ill effects
