Stuck Pixels. Dammit.

Last night in playing with my laptop, I happened to notice in the top left hand corner, a dead pixel.

Or burnt. It shows blue all the time.

Now, it wouldn't have bugged me, but now that i've discovered it I just know it's there. It sits there, mocking me.

I want to ring JB Hi-fi about it and have something done, but I will probably sound really picky.

Suggestions?

have you tried "massaging" it with a Q-Tip?
or running one of those flash tools that are supposed to fix them?

How old is the laptop? Does it have a dead/stuck pixel warranty?

One pixel ... that's nothing. I have an old dead lappy with a row of red dead pixels.

Yeah, once i'd found it, it haunted me. Every dark-ish screen would make it just stand out.

It was kind of like "The Mole" in Austin Powers.
