Hi, I've just bought Lenovo N200 and while installing ubuntu I found an annoying orange dot on left part of the screen. It is visible on any except for white background. I think it's a dead pixel but still not sure. Have you ever encountered this?

Update:
That's what I found on lenovo service and troubleshooting guide:

Problem: Missing, discolored, or bright dot appear on the screen every time you turn on your computer
Solution: This is an intrinsic characteristic of the TFT technology. Your computer's display contains multiple thin-film transistors (TFTs). A small number of missing, discolored or bright dots on the screen might exist all the time.

So, I assume that is quite normal :-(

Update2:

Also found out about lenovo pixel policy that says I have to collect at least 5 dead pixels to be able to get a replacement. :)
