So, this morning I thought there was a small bug on my monitor, and in typical fashion I went to kill it and wipe it off. Funny thing, it wouldn't clean off. As it turns out, the bug was actually inside my monitor--it's small, looks like about 2 dead pixels side-by-side, but it's right in the middle of my screen and it will drive me absolutely insane given the amount of work I do with a white background. I suppose my only real option is to either take it apart myself and try to clean it, or take it somewhere. I'm not real keen on option A since it's a $600 monitor and I'd hate to break it for the sake of a 2 dead pixel smudge, but I would be willing to pay a place to do it. Does anyone have any recommendations of a place in the Buffalo area I could at least call to inquire if they can help out? Thanks.

Spray your monitor with raid or some other bug spray. That or maybe you could rewire it so that it would work as a bug zapper. This is, of course, after you use a razor blade to cut the dead bug out of your screen.

I'm interested to know how this goes, please report back. My initial thought was the panel on most screens is sealed but that may not be true. In any case, I found this and it's apparently it's not impossible.

Bottom line: don't squash the bug, just let it die then it should be easy to get to drop down to the bezel out of sight. But if you do squash it, there is hope!
