Hi, I am wondering how I can conduct a thorough examination to check the monitor for damages or defects. Do I need tools to do that?

I normally check full-screen solid color images.

Black to check for bright stuck pixels and backlight bleed, then cycle through several colors to check for stuck dark pixels and color uniformity. A medium gray is excellent for checking uniformity as it tends to show issues more apparently than primary colors.

Unfortunately, tests are not fullscreen
None of the Lagom tests need to be fullscreen. They aren't showing panel uniformity, they are showing inherent panel characteristics that apply to the entire panel. Hence why I recommended to also visually inspect full screen color images.

To check for damages or defects on your monitor, turn it on and visually inspect the screen for any cracks, scratches, or dead pixels.
Adjust the brightness and contrast settings, and check for any abnormalities or discolorations.
Also, you may inspect the ports and cables for any damage. If you suspect any issues, contact the manufacturer or a professional technician.

To conduct a thorough examination of your laptop monitor, you don't necessarily need any special tools. However, you can use a few basic things like a clean, soft cloth to wipe the screen, a flashlight to check for any dead pixels or screen damage, and an external display to compare the quality and clarity of your laptop screen.

You can also run a diagnostic tool or software to check for any issues with the display. Many laptop manufacturers provide their own built-in diagnostic tools that can help identify any problems with the display.

If you notice any issues with your laptop screen, like flickering, distorted colors, or the screen turning off randomly, you can try troubleshooting the problem by adjusting the display settings or updating the graphics drivers.

Lastly, to hold the screen on the laptop and prevent it from going to sleep or turning off automatically, you can adjust the power settings in the Control Panel or System Preferences, depending on your operating system.
I am talking about external displays not laptop screens.
