Most of you will laugh because this is ridiculous.

So a bug got attracted to the LED screen and flew onto my computer screen. I killed it obviously by squishing the bug while it's on my screen. Now on the same spot there is this dot there which I can see clearly if the background is white (for example I can see this spot if I am in a folder and the area the dpt is on is white; under black background such as letters it disappears).

I though it was just bug blood so I took a cloth and wipe it. It didn't disappear. I scrubed harder like I was trying to get rid of a really bad stain. It's still there. I tried using electronic cleaning wipes too.

Then I tried pulling the plug of my monitor but didn't work.

Maybe the squishing caused some pixels to die or something. I HAVE NO IDEA. but it's annoying.

Any Advice? I was thinking like a software to refresh all the pixels or refresh the monitor?

Bugs often carry certain enzymes that will cause a pixel to get angry and only show red.

.. or its probably just a dead pixel. Sorry to say its there forever and no software can get rid of it. You'll won't even notice it in a week :thumbup2:
