I recently purchased an X61ThinkPad (model 7675CTO) and when I boot up the laptop, I notice a pinhole white dot on the screen. After Windows XP boots, the white pinhole dot appears on the screen as well. Does anyone know what causes this?
I believe there are some software applets that can be downloaded that will excercise the pixels and may be able to correct it. There are also some physical treatment methods discussed online. I believe RBS is suggesting some of the gentle rubbing techniques described in the wiki entry contained in the link below.
Here is one such article with some tips and links to other resources to get you started.
None of these are prescribed methods recommended or endorsed by Lenovo, but you might still find them useful.
