Stuck Pixel in Webcam

by lordandcreator / June 23, 2010 3:59 PM PDT

I just got a webcam from eBay. Pretty much generic and cheap (exactly what I expected), but works very nice... Except for this one pixel. Or maybe a pixel. I do not know if webcam imaging has pixels.

It is stuck on white. It is sooo annoying. I'd like to fix it, but I do not know how. I do know that there is software to fix them in screens and have heard that software exists for fixing webcams, but I can't seem to find any. Is there one that anybody knows of??? Or is there something I can do to fix it, short of major surgery?

It's a plug and play type. Called SWD USB 2.0 Webcam. It should be 20 megapixels, but I got it "new" from eBay. So, it came from a wholesale in China Wink ha.

Please help!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
