ok well earlier today i noticed this black spot suddenly appear and creep up from my screen. at first it wasnt so big but it grew almost 3x the size it was before and still growing!. i have no idea how it got there it just suddenly appeared from no where. i think its killing my pixels and steadily getting bigger and bigger as it eats all the pixels around it. at this rate its gonna over take my entire screen...

here is a pick of it:

If your monitor is new and you have verified that the screen is dying you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.
