Hey guys.
This is a followup to the vertical line issue I posted, but that's resolved. However, I've found...believe it or not...a dead pixel on a CRT. It's a flat screen CRT (NEC AccuSync 95F - uses a flat screen but standard CRT technology), and the pixel is towards the bottom center of the screen and constantly red. I tried it on two different machines and it's still that way. I've also tried a power off, changing the settings, etc. It's always there. My question - what should I do about it? I don't like that it has one (especially since this seems so rare it's never even mentioned as an issue), but...besides that the monitor seems good. Argh - not sure what to do. Anyhow, any input on this would be helpful!

Thanks. This is going back, and I'm going to try an LG Flatron 915 Plus instead. Keep hearing good things, so wish me luck. Maybe 3rd try'll be a charm, eh?
