Hi, my laptop screen is acting strange. There are several red blots and images and pictures look shabby. Can anyone help. Has anyone encountered this before??

Viktik gave you good information!
Assuming it is not a defect,did you update the drivers recently?

If you did not do anything, then its manufacturing defect.
So dell must replace it for free.

High moisture in air can cause problem in monitor. So you should take care of monitor in rainy season.
Thanks viktik!!! My system is some 4 years old. So probably my excessive usage might be behind this:confused::mad:

If they are red dots then they might just be stuck pixels.White dots would be dead pixels.There are online tests and also fixes for stuck pixels.Since you are probably past the warranty you can try and fix the problem before buying a new screen
Here is a link with some fixes
