Can I do it without taking the LCD apart?  Could I use an air "gun"?

I have considered that ... I'm guessing that means replacing the monitor.  Sounds costly.

Yes. Depending on the size manufacturer and quality of the monitor it could be increadibly expensive.

I would suggest easiest way to see if it is a dead pixel is to hold a magnifying glass to the up to the spec to see if it bound by the pixel vector's. If this is true it should look like a square.
