I have a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop that I got this past June (it is still under man. warranty). I recently noticed that one of my pixels on my screen is stuck. On a white screen, it looks red/pink. I am not really sure what to do to fix it or if it can even be fixed. I have not really done anything to try to fix it other than shutting down the laptop. Any information or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Stuck pixel is a problem at the hardware level in the screen.

If HP will change the screen for only one stuck pixel that is the way to go as the screen needs to be changed to fix this problem.
