My 2 month old MacBook has started to get Red Dots appearing all over the screen... They come and go, They're in no particular place and sometimes they're worse than others...

Check out the picture of Moss from the IT Crowd I snapped (below)... It's always annoying but it has made editing pictures almost impossible...

I don't think this is a stuck pixel issue because they're not always in the same place and they move...



See how the red pixels run down Moss' face where it meets his hair... As the video moves the line will stay in more or less the same spot on his face...

I don't get it... Has anyone ever seen this before?
:mad:

They are never in one certain spot, they move about. i don't know why they do it! Someone Help me! the dots started coming up ever since i downloaded a demo of a video game and they have not been the same since!

:(. One month old MacBook. I'll have to wait like 5-6 month's until I go to U.S. to take it for repair.
Why? The warranty is international, take it to whoever repairs Apple computers near you. Of course if no one does, sorry for the tough luck. :(

@ home.
I hooked up an external monitor and everything worked fine in it. No red dots - they're only on my notebook. That means that....?

I sent it into warranty last wednesday but DHL lost it. So far, Apple have done nothing to get me my laptop back.
I'm so sorry. I hope to have better luck with mine. Keep us informed if you get the reason as why the red dots appeared, or confirming us that the Logic Board failed.

Edit: How did it go?

I have this problem but it happens on my external monitor and not the macbook pro monitor. Could this be logic board or my monitor or the connection? I just bought a displayport adapter to see if its my DVI connection.

Logic board most likely, maybe ram. Either way it is probably going to have to be sent in unfortunately. :(

I have this issue too:

-I had it before and after I upgraded the stock 4 gig apple ram to 8 gigs crucial ram.
-I have sent it and received it from Apple and still have the issue - they have already replaced the logic board and display.

-I am not happy.
