in CRTs there are pixels on the screen itself made of phosphor in three components (red blue green?) if one of the components of the pixel is damaged then it won't display properly.
The CRT i'm using right now has a dead pixel.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

Send a message via Yahoo to talldude123

If you abuse your monitor, the pixels can go crazy and blurry, etc.
