    the pixel isn't really dead. it's just stuck, and you have to help him find his way. ;)

    this might help.

    Jscreenfix didn't work. Does that leave much hope for stucksweep?

    Over the last several years, I've had a number of dead pixels on various displays, and I have tried every method and never been able to fix one.

    Yes. Looks like a good excuse to buy that 200$ 22" Viewsonic. :p

    Yup, fantastic excuse. Those 22" Viewsonic monitors are great, I've got no dead or stuck pixels on mine. :p
