Possible damage to laptop screen

  1. Jun 5, 2016 #1
    I know I am going to sound real paranoid with this question, but someone at my house was cleaning up, and they put a couple of textbooks on top of my laptop (the textbooks together weigh maybe 2-3 pounds). It was on top for maybe 15 minutes. I opened up the laptop to see if there was any damage to the screen and everything seems fine right now, but is it possible that the damage manifests itself later? How bad is it to put something on top of a closed laptop like that?

    If you don't see any problems, then it should be fine. I would just ask them not to do something like that again.
