Do you have any dead pixels or burn-in on your monitor?

Dead Pixels only applies to LCD or Plasma monitor users.

I used to have them on my last one but it ended up having enough go bad that I got to trade it in on warranty. My new one hasn't had ANY problems whatsoever.

A dead pixel is where one of your pixels is stuck a certain color but usually ends up being black. They are common in LCD monitors made by off brands.

Here's a poor example but maybe somebody can find a better one:



Here's an example of image burn-in:

my laptop has this in the bottom left. Its a bright bright green square that manages to always be brighter than everything else on the screen.

When I watch the videos from iTunes or whatever that square sticks out like a sore thumb

I've heard if you rub the screen where the dead pixel is at you can sometimes bring them back. I haven't ever tried it myself.
