I am not sure what it is or how to solve it. I am confident that it's not a dead Pixel. I shut down and then I switched HDMI ports on my monitor and then rebooted back into windows and it went away. Sometimes it will come back. I too use steam often... HELP. It has not returned at the moment, I removed display with DDU, with fresh driver install. Not sure.

You've done good first steps. Leave it there and see what happens.

Not only have you possibly resolved it anyway (it may have just been a one-off graphical glitch), but it's also good to take action then wait and see so that you can trace exactly what rectified it.

I appreciate the rapid response. The spot has come back more than once in the past. However this is the first time I used DDU for a completely fresh driver removal and install. Other times I would just shutdown and switch HDMI ports. I hope I don't have a faulty GPU as they are just about impossible to acquire. Luckily it's still under manufactures warranty.
