I went to MS Paint and resized the canvas to my screen res and filled it all with dark red. Then I pressed Ctrl + F to make it full-screen. I noticed that there was one distinct bright pixel. I noticed this a while ago, but I just decided to take a picture of it to show it to you guys.
Is it really a bright pixel? How can I fix it? I hope it IS possible to fix it. I got this monitor about one year back. The make of it is "mitsuco", very strange name!

Please respond, thank you!

Normally it means that it's dead. Can't really fix it yourself.

Thanks for taking this one, I wasn't sure what they meant because the picture reminded me of an old DOS game. lol

NO its not dead. If it's dead, doesn't it mean that it stays the same colour all the time? Well I tried other colours, normal shading, and darker, but they all work perfectly. Only the red part of that specific pixel stays brighter when it should be darker.
Now do you understand? Am I still wrong?

buy a new one
There is no God, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven,
no hell. It is all a dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists
but you. And you are but a thought a vagrant thought, a useless thought,
a homeless thought,wandering forlorn among the empty eternities!

I'm here to say that my problem IS a STUCK PIXEL. Sorry for previous confusions. I was looking at Google Earth when I noticed the same pixel stayed that kind of red - bright red - everywhere i looked. But it is VERY small and hard to find so maybe thats why I thought it only happened when it was showing dark red... I fillled my whole screen with any colour and, yes, you could see that it remained red all the time if you looked really closely. So what can I do now? I think it's fixable, isn't it?
