KillDeadPixel. Here’s a cute little tool which may help to recover dead pixels on your LCD monitor. You know, those little points of light which indicate liquid crystal cells which have stopped working. Definitely a bookmark for the toolbox (although it gives me a bit of a headache if I look at it too long).
Simply drag the above graphic to your dead pixel and let it stay there for about 1 hour. The graphic will try to massage the dead pixel back alive again by getting it to change rapidly. It has been reported to work many times. But it doesn’t work for all dead pixels.. still its a good try.
