Default Re: fixing dead pixels with a .gif file....

Well I can attest that the extended warranties from both Best Buy and Circuit City will fix a monitor with a single dead pixel. I did it at the former, and currently work at the later.

But yeah, most standard warranties will not take it back. Most companies have a policy of 4 in a single square inch, or 25 overall. It's annoying.

System: Athlon 64 X2 3800+
EVGA Geforce 8600 GTS 256mb PCIE
ECS (pile of crap) Mobo
1.5 GB Corsair PC3200
Soundblaster Audigy Pro
Windows XP Pro, Lemming Optimized.
