    Default IBM Thinkpad jus got dead/stuck pixels

    Sianx..my IBM laptop just had a dead/stuck pixel that is green in colour...dunno wad to do ....it only appears in when black/grey colours are at that spot. and IBM's webpage states that they'll only change the LCD if there're more than 11 dead pixels

    massage the dead pixel. apply pressure on the spot when the screen is off and rub it while switching it on hopefully the pixel will work again

    actually there's no diff. try finding for this prog, UDPixel. apparently it fixes stuck pixels. Yours could be stuck not dead

    anyway i thought the replacement also depends on the resolution right?
