    I have a viewsonic 20" and I have a stuck pixel. Its one tiny dot thats brighter then the rest. Its hard to see but i can tell. I tried the pixel fix widget. Not helping. How long does it have to run to help it? I tried lightly rubbing it. The monitor is 2 months old. What else can I do to get rid of it. Its not like its stops my work but.....man is it annoying one thing thats strange when i put anything black over it i can't see it. So if i put my mouse on it i can't see it. Or anything black for that matter. Same with anything white. What else can i try? Will rest help?

    You'll get used to it and won't notice it after awhile. There really isn't anything you can do to fix it.

    It's good that it's not a black pixel on a white background or a white one on a black background..that would be the most annoying.

    run it for awhile on the pixel (turn off screen savers).
