Default Got dead pixels on your LCD?

I came across this one while surfing my tech news.

Description : This program helps to locate and fix LCD screens dead pixels.

Licence: Freeware

Version: 2.0

Platform: Windows 2000/XP/2003

This program requires .net Framework from Microsoft

How does it work: You can fix the stuck pixels by calling them to do rapid changes. You need to run this program for a couple of hours, result is not guarantee, but you don't really have anything to lose trying it out.
Good luck.

that's pretty cool. Didn't even think there was anything you could do if you had a dead pixel. I figured it was just one of those things that if your monitor had it then you were S.O.L.

It only helps for some "lazy" pixels. Not the ones that are really damaged.

Yes I've seen someone do it with a pencil eraser.
