Hi,
I'm having a problem with either my monitor or my graphics card. Basicaly, when I play games I get little red dots all over the sceren, this is evident more on some games than others. I also get a similar proble when viewing JPEG files. I've tried reinstalling the latest drivers for my graphics card but it will not fix. I also though that it could be my monitor, though, I don't know the model or the brand, it is a TFT monitor. Any help would be great, thanks,
Andrew

I would try setting the monitor's refresh rate at different settings in Windows "Display" properties to see if problem goes away. If you have another monitor, you could test to see if problem persists and if it does then you know the problem is with the video card.

Thanks for the reply,
Unfortunately, changing the refresh rate doesn't fix the problem and I don't have a spare monitor...
However, If I use my graphics card display settings to turn doen the brightness + contrast of red pixels, the problem disppears, though, I don't want to have to do this every time I want to play game, as it makes other programs unviewabely blue...
I'll try to get a lend of a monitor next week and will update with results...
