might be but i dont see anyway to rip it off i think they are stuck to each other
defo not glass tho
If it is a LCD and it has an anti-glare "filter" (thin "uneven" plastic layer in between the LCD crystals and the "outside") then only the filter should be scratched. You should be able to remove the filter, follow this guide (it's the same procedure after you remove the LCD from the screen enclosure).
If it's a CRT screen then the only thing that you can do is try to take the screen to someone that owns a jeweler buffing wheel and see if him/her could buff that portion of the screen.
I was going to mention the anti-glare screen, too (seems others beat me to it ).
Anyhow, over 90% of LCDs have some sort of film over the actual panel itself - there's a very good probability you could remove it . . . you'd have to dismantle the monitor, though, but more than likely that actual panel itself is still fine.
Yeah unless she really went to town with the sand paper you should be able to get it looking right as rain again
I'd recommend getting another sheet of plastic to replace it though.
Just incase she comes for round two!
one thing you have to teach kids:
u want revenge?
let it be, or the counterrevenge would be 3 times hard
I use Novus scratch remover. You can order it from TAP plastics or US Plastics. There are three parts: Heavy Scratch Remover, Light Scratch Remover, and Polish/Cleaner. Use the Novus polishing cloths too to avoid making more swirl marks. Start with the heavy and use very light pressure and buff about a 3" square area at a time. Then clean it off with the Cleaner/Polish and use the light scratch remover same way and clean again. Should be able to get rid of almost any damage that way. Just take time and go lightly on it or it'll get hazy.
Damn Man, that sucks BALLZ!!! I would get a gun and chase ur sister down and slap her to death, HAHAHA just kidding I would neva do that lol, but seriously man thats sux, hope u get ur moniter problem fixed!!!

Hmm... that sucks something fierce. I have a 17" monitor that I gave to my mom that got ruined by kids. They drew on it with pencil. I couldn't clean it off with cleaner so I had to use the eraser to erase the pencil off, but now there are eraser marks on the screen...
I feel you're pain...4 year old brother pissed and missed the PSU while it was on by about 1 inch...I guess you should try to buff it, RMA it and then if all else fails, Kill a Russian, loot their vodka and sell it to an Asian saying its the liquid of peace. (No offence, I'm trying to brighten his day)
Here is a picture for those of you who asked
after a day of thought I think i am just going to ignore it... it just really sucks ass... Thank EVERYONEfor there support.
Pic with image also displayed on the screen? I'm guessing not as noticeable but damn that sucks
