    I got a used NDSL off ebay and the thing is legit. Was used for a pawn shop sold as it with no charger/stylus/slot2 cover. It works so that's good (haven't tested slot1 yet though).

    Anyway. The top screen has some "spidering" or "frosting." Its not cracked. Any easy way of getting at the top screen without having to take the whole thing apart?

    Does the 'spidering' go away if you turn the system on or off, or is it always there?

    unfortunately i don'y have access to a digicam with enough megapixels to pick it up.

    i can only see it when the system is on.

    Hmm.. Does it look like the spidering is made up of dead pixels? You could have a malfunctioning ribbon cable.

    I am going to have to track down a better camera. Its only really noticeable when the screen is mostly white (ie. bios start screen). I am guessing a small amount of moisture got between the actual LCD and the OEM screen/case cover.

    Spiderman?

    awww shit. wrong thread. Also your name is funny.

    Let us know when you get a picute. My guess is that the top part of your screen is being pinched somehow. Is possible it could be repaired, but im betting youll need a new one.
