    Because of the summer, there are alot of small flies in my house and everywhere else.
    The problem is, that they're under my monitor too, and they're still alive.
    It's veeeery anoying, because it look like you have alot of moving dead pixels.
    I don't know how they wen't in my monitor, but I want them to get out the same way as they went in.
    Currently, I have 4 of them.
    Anybody else know a way to get em out?

    Bait them out, and then spray them.
    (or suck them out [​IMG] E: Or blow them out with compressed air! )

    If he could, then he should just Right-click then Auto-Arrange then delete the flies.

    Poke them near the "vents" with a toothpick + Vacuum cleaner.

    But seriously, take it back to the store. Or try shaking it. That should do it.

    Allready did that, read some topic on tweakers, and they the same everywhere.
    Vacuum, compressed air, open the screen and take away the invadors, or contact, in my case, HP.
    (I searched that after I posted this)

    i doubt the warranty covers infestation, so just take it apart and clean it. there should be a piece of plexi-glass on top of the actual LCD. it's generally got a foam tape around the edges to seal it off. i'm surprised the little buggers got in there.

    Now it seems like 2 of the 5 disappeared but 3 of em are now in the middle of the screen!
    At the moment I''m typing this, they woke up, and now they are crawling again.
    BTW I have a HP w2207H, bought in Januar.
    Let the people at HP hurry with responding!
