Potential causes of LCD computer screen ink spots???

The screen on my year-old laptop just had an LCD ink leak (it looks like there was a black ink spill across aportion of my screen and you can see the outline of it even when the computer is turned off). Since this occured, when the computer is turned on vertical and horizontal lines block out most of my screen space.
I realize that I need to get a new screen or a new laptop, but the warranty repair company is telling me that these leaks are generally caused by abuse or misuse, so they won't fix my problem. Trouble is, I've never dropped, abused, or misused my computer. I feel like my chain is being yanked because the company is trying to get out of fixing the problem. Does anyone know what else can cause the LCD to leak? Does anyone else know if Toshiba laptops are prone to any screen defects?
