My laptop has three columns of dead pixels and it appears to be growing everyday. I myself came to accept it that the only remedy is to replace the screen. My question now, because I am still confused, is about specific causes of dead pixels. (Read: I have a nagger of an uncle and I have to have a defense in case my mother interrogated me about this freaking screen. Please do help me :))
Do old laptops tend to have greater risk of having dead pixels? My laptop is almost 8 years old now.
Does frequent use (Read: using the laptop for an extended duration of time-- eg 9-20 hours straight) cause dead pixels? I am annoyed by my uncle's ignorant assertion that my extended use is the primary cause of this problem.
