Dead pixels in top left third of screen
Dec 12, 2010, 7:35 AM
I moved my monitor (HP L2335) about a foot, and a corner of the display has gone totally dead.
One ninth of the screen (top left corner) is black. It is a perfect rectangle.
Has anyone ever experienced anything like this or know how I may be able to fix it? I've tried another cable (it's using DVI and i tried a VGA) and troubleshooting in Windows.

Well, it could be some of your pixel on monitor are dead.
You can try using another monitor, if the dead pixel are gone then your current monitor is the problem.

I actually use 2 monitors at the moment, and yes, the other works fine. It is an older model monitor, yet it was doing an excellent job..
I guess that's the way these things go though.
Thanks for the replies.
