Black dot on screen

Hello, my monitor started showing this black circle on pixels. I think the pixels aren't dead because there are colours showing under the black circle. Is there any way to fix this? It even shows when the monitor is unplugged from the computer.


I already tried :

Restarting my computer

Trying a different HDMI cable

Turning the monitor on and off

Reinstalling gpu drivers


Any suggestions and help will be much appreciated
