I just got a new 19'' widescreen Veiwsonic monitor. I turned it on and there is a little red dead pixel on the bottom of my screen. I can only see it when my screen is black but its annoying. I spent several hundred dollars on this and I dont want a red dot on my screen. Someone told my to apply pressure to the area and turn my comp on when still putting pressure on it. This sounds bogus to me! Anyone>>>??

return it, since you've spent so much you deserve a perfect working monitor

I have and people on here have used it and it worked...you just have to apply a small amount of pressure to the area and gently rub it, and sometimes voila it fixs it...
