Dead Pixels on my LCD Monitor

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

There are 3 dots appearing on my screen. I tried to wipe them because I thought they are just dirt, but they are not.

They are appearing on every page that I go to.

They changed colors sometimes, but most of the time they are back.

I am using:

  • Acer Aspire Notebook
  • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
  • Win 7
  • 100 GB HDD
  • Intel Dual Core

No clue if this is a hardware problem or not. So please let me know if you know any solutions for this.

I am afraid that it will spread all throughout my LCD screen.

Dead Pixels on my LCD Monitor


Three dots that appear on your LCD screen is called dead pixel. This is common in LCD monitors.

To ascertain whether the problem is happening on your LCD is a dead pixel or not, you can use free software "PixelRepairer". 

This program can help you to find dead pixels on your monitor screen and also fix it.


To find the dead pixel with this software:

  • Clean the monitor.
  • Run the program PixelRepairer.
  • Click the search button located on the left top.
  • Select one color or pattern, and then click Enable to display the monitor into a single color or a pattern.
  • If there are dots / pixels that have a different color with the color you have chosen, means that there are dead pixels on the monitor.

To fix dead pixels, do the following:

  • Run PixelRepair.
  • Click the Repair button.
  • Click the Add button to add the repair area.
  • Drag the repair area to dead pixel position.
  • Select noise mode, if not successfully use the solid model.
  • Set the frequency equal to the monitor frequency.
  • Wait about one hour repair process, can use the computer for anything else.

This software can be downloaded.

Good luck.

You just Killed a Pixel.

Your only chances in fixing this thing (usually it really doesn't fix it) is to download a Pixel correction tool there's a link above.

Cross your fingers in dealing with this one because most of the time it really doesn't do anything.

But don't worry it doesn't affect your system but on how the way you view things on your monitor.

If the correction tool doesn't work sad to say you will need to go to the nearest Computer repair shop and get it replaced.

Hope this answers your question.
