Default Blue dots on my screen :/

Hello guys,

I having this weird problem and im going to start telling that I have 2 screens behind my gtx 670
and that 1 screen is totaly blue dots FREE and the other one has a few dots over the screen

I was doing some pixel test that was on youtube Pixel test - YouTube

but ahm I also have this in games in some situations like if I see a smoke in counter strike source

but here are 2 pictures that I made with my phone when I am moving steam around and then you see that the dots react at some movement so when I pull steam more to the bottom the dots on the top are gone



any help ?

Those are stuck pixels. And a lot of them! I'm thinking that monitor is going away on you. warranty?

I had that happen to a $600.00 panel once. But it was green pixels where the blacks should have been. See if the one monitor does it while hooked up by itself. Then check the other monitor by itself.

It's always a good idea to fill in your system specs when asking for help. :)

Those do indeed look like stuck pixels and enough of them to have the warranty kick in if you still have one. If not you may want to try something like this:

JScreenFix - Pixel Repair

It can sometimes get them firing correctly again.
