    You don't need any software, you just need to get up close to your display.

    Dead pixels are either stuck off or on, and therefore may be black, blue red or green. In order to fully determine, you'll need to ideally display an entirely white, or red and blue picture. If you have a PC linked up to your display you can do this easily with your desktop background.

    If not, then something like the Digital Video Essentials DVD has test patterns of solid colour.

    Be warned however that from a normal viewing distance any dead pixels you have are likely to go unnoticed. If you get close up and find any, they may bug your forever! If you are planning on using the display as a computer monitor you might care more than if it's just for TV/DVD use.
