Red Dots On Screen Of Studio 1737

Small red dots appear intermittently in what seems to be random patterns.  I run the Dell Video Diagnostic and they go away .

They do not show up on any printed documents.  They are just very annoying to look at while creating documents.

Could this be a precursor to video failure.  I purchased this unit from WalMart in April 2009.

Does the fault show up if you use an external monitor?

No, just on my laptop monitor.

That means the display panel is faulty - it will need to be replaced.
