Solved pixel prob.

Post by crabman on Wed Jan 16, 2008 9:45 am

As my desk was starting to become a little cramped, I decided to buy myself a 17-inch TFT monitor. In the Taskbar of Windows I can see a single red dot that I just cannot get rid of. I’ve updated the drivers for my graphics card – a Radeon 9600 Pro – and tried everything else I can think of to no avail. How do I banish the dot? help :cry: Big Grin

It sounds as though you’re suffering from a dead pixel. A 17-inch flat screen monitor has a native resolution of 1,280 x 1,024, which equates to 1,310,720 pixels. Each of these pixels is made up of three sub-pixels (one for red, one for blue and one for green), giving a grand total of 3,932,160. The incredible number of connections found in a TFT monitor means that it is not uncommon for one or more to fail, resulting in the dead pixel you’re experiencing.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do to fix the problem. Different monitor manufacturers have different policies regarding dead pixels, so it’s worth getting in touch with them to see if you can get a replacement. Realistically, as only a single pixel is affected, you’re unlikely to get a replacement as a single fault is deemed to be acceptable. If you had problems with several pixels you may have more luck.

hmmm... My knowledge on hardware is not that good... or it is? Shocking Whoa

Perhaps we can have a review section?... Maybe you can post your sugesstion in the Forum Feedback section and the staff and I could look into it.

You can also post your questions in the Hardware section and ask for personal reviews or opinions, I will definitely give my point of views if I can.
