Hello, I was wondering if any of you guys could figure out what is wrong with my monitor. There seems to be a 0.5 cm red dot near the middle of it. It appears on dark backgrounds, most noticeably on a black background, but it's barely visible on lighter backgrounds, no sign of it on a white one.

- on the first image it's shown on a black background, cmd, and on the next I put a blank notepad file over it, it disappears. Could they be dead pixels? Might be worth to mention that my monitor tends to get hot quite fast over use. It's a HP ZR24w monitor.
