HP Laptop pavillon dv61306el notebook
I still don't believe it, but I found a bug crawling on my screen (thinking it was a sort of a virus at first).
After a while it stopped right in the middle, so I tried to tap the monitor to see if it it would go away for good.
Unfortunately it got stuck, leaving there even a little blood stain.
Tried to take apart the screen for cleaning it (thought it had a little sort of plastic pane between the actual LCD screen and the outside) but it turned out to be a indivisible block.
Is there a procedure for dismantling that said block, getting to clean the stain and remove the bug with a pair of tweezers?

With out actually seeing your machine, I believe it's one of the "Flush Screen" models.
If it is, in theory nothing is supposed to get in there between the display and the plastic bezel, according to HP anyway.
The display is held to the plastic by this two sided industrial tape, a few people have had some success breaking this seal by working a piece of dental floss between the display and the bezel. (use unwaxed)
In your case you only need to get it apart enough to get the bug out, but if you want to clean the blood off, I suspect you're going to have to go a bit further.
The other tricky bit here is when you assemble things back, you will inevitably get some specs in there that will show up later.
It's a "bear" of job to do.
