"Check for dead pixels, scratches or defects."
InjuredPixels is a software package primarily to verify whether a display screen has any dead pixels. The software is designed to run either on a Windows desktop, Windows laptop or Windows tablet.
The software is portable and so does not need to be installed. This is useful because it can therefore be loaded on to a USB flash drive and plugged into different devices to check them all one after the other.
The software can test monitors or laptops in-store before leaving the store with them. This way the purchaser can be sure that the monitor or laptop was okay when it left the store and avoid taking home the purchase with a dead pixel and then when returning with it being told it was damaged on the journey from the store to home.
There is no installation needed as the executable file runs without a problem. There was no malicious software included with the distribution.
The software runs on any modern Windows version including 7, 8 and 8.1.
When running the app, it immediately goes to full screen with no borders or Windows task bar, etc. This can be a bit of a surprise if you're not expecting that. The "Escape" key can close the app and the InjuredPixels menu is displayed immediately from startup.
The software will fill up the full screen with either a custom color or a familiar primary color. This way it is easy to spot a dead pixel on the screen.
The control system for the app just involves clicking or touch or using arrow keys to move through different colors to check how the display looks.
There is also a menu with the main commands. Individual screen color selections display at the top of the menu with Black, White, Red, and Green being the first few selections.
The interface is pretty slick for a simple dead pixel checker one likely won't use often unless buying and selling monitors or laptops is part of daily trade.

- Portable app that does not require installation
InjuredPixels is a useful app that can be taken out of a USB flash drive to test a monitor or LED LCD display on a new laptop before purchase. Check a display in a variety of colors to see dead pixels that can come in different colors.
