I would imagine its an LCD type of monitor or laptop screen, as one bright pixel can happen on them. It is odd for a CRT to have such a problem.
Try using the monitor on another computer and see if the white pixel is still there. If it is, then its your monitor.
As far as fixing it goes, it is not easy, and if its a LCD or similar technology, then chances of fixing it are real slim. Even so, its something you probably cant do yourself, and would cost too much money to have someone look at it.
In cases such as that, Most technitians will not even bother with it.
(BTW, I am 75% done in college for a degree in Electronics Engineering)

White and black=dead
sometimes, they will be colored. these are stuck pixels
A dead pixel is almost always dead for good; a stuck pixel will sometimes come back to life and--believe it or not--rubbing the screen gently can sometimes coax it back to the living.
LCD makers have different policies, but generally speaking anything less than 3 dead pixels is acceptable to them--some even say less than 7.
Some companies offer no-dead pixel policies guarantees for a price, especially with laptops.
