    Lit Pixels

    For some reason, my entire monitor is displaying lit pixels. Mostly green. This really disappoints me. The warrenty was long past voided, so I figured I'd open her up and see what I can fix. Everything seemed in order, so I put all the boards back in and prayed that a little reassembly would fix it. Unfortunately it's still the same.

    I can't imagine all of the pixels would become lit at the exact same time, so I'm assuming it's one of the display boards. Looks like I'm springing for a new monitor unless anyone can think of a fix.

    what amazes me is that you're still able to type so well.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Well, luckily, this site is on a white background so the lit pixel doesn't affect it. Even though it's lit green, though, I don't notice it on full red or blue (it's amazing what colors seem to have a little green in them to brighting them up). Only black or dark colors.

    Oh, I also maximized the contrast to minimize the appearance of the dead pixels.
