Angry White "film" appearing in corner

Please Login to Remove!

I have had my 8700c since last November, but I just noticed that in the upper left corner of my screen there appears to be a white "film-like" substance. I also notice a little of the same substance in the lower left corner as well. It kind of resembles glue in a way, as I can see the white substance go across the top part of my screen and then disappear as you move toward the right. It does not appear to be moisture. I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem.

Possibly salt and oil creeping in underneath the corners?

Maybe it's the dust issue that the earlier 8700s were having.

Definitely not dust. It looks like white film.

keep it out of the bed in the middle of the night...

but seriously, might as well get a warranty replacement as soon as possible.
