    Hey, my monitor has these green dots, pixel sized, at random places on the screen, I'll try to get a picture from my camera, hold on a sec.

    EDIT: Well, I can't get a clear picture that shows it, but I know I have it. Green dots on random places on the monitor. Someone suggested that I may have a magnet by it, but I don't even think I have a magnet. I just notice dthis today, playing Gmod. Help is much appreciated.

    It's not possible to fix by yourself if at all possible to fix.

    Actually, too many slooges on the screen can cause pixel-cancer, which slowing affects the entire monitor.

    Actually, I found out it's not dead pixels, but rather a possibly slightly fried graphics card / motherboard, because the green pixels are in a strangely fermilliar (SP?) pattern, I had it on my old computer.

    You see, when I go onto that red green and blue thing, that color check or wahtever, I see no green box's It's gotta be a Cooked thingy, but it still boots (sometimes) It dosn't boot ALL the time, but it boots and runs stuff fine.

    EDIT2:
    Yay, my life is officially a pile of S-H-I-T.

    My laptop is gimped, my PC is Gimped, I just broke up with my girlfriend, and I have a shitload of homework for french with the most inept partner in the history of partners. Seriously, I think he's half retarded.

    For future reference, all speakers have magnets in them. Having them too close to the monitor will make those funny colour splotches on the sides/corners of your screen. That's why most CRT monitors have a "degauss" function, to remove these splotches for idiots that insist on having their speakers sitting right next to their monitor.
