HP x2 Touch Screen black rectangle in the middle of the screen

HP Pavilion x2
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)



The laptop hasn't been dropped or anything. This rectangular just shown up in the middle of the screen as it noticeable. The touch screen works fine, but when I'm using it on low brightness, it's quite annoying. Is there any solution to solve this? I would really appreciate any kind of help.

Hi @tmarky89,

Spectacular troubleshooting, superb description and splendid analysis of the issue before posting. Kudos to you for that. Smiley Happy You are a valued Hp customer and I take it as a privilege to share this platform with you. Smiley Happy

For better clarity and to assist you better I would require more information regarding this.

  • Is it possible for someone else to have tipped it over?
  • Does anyone else use this computer apart from you?

The picture is very clear. It is a cracked screen. So you will need to contact HP phone support to get it fixed as it is a cracked screen and the standard warranty will not cover it for you. It could be paid support.

For better clarity please check this link out:

This is also a useful link:

Step 1. Open link:

They will be happy to assist you immediately.

Hope this helps.  Let me know how this goes. I genuinely hope the issue gets resolved without hassles and the unit works great. Smiley Happy  Please reach out for any issues and I'll be there to assist you. Smiley Happy
