    hello and welcome.. :) Do you have the latest video drivers for your video card? And your screen may have dead pixels. TRY your pc with another moniter. IF you dont know what video card you have go start>run>dxdiag>display. Give me your card info and i may find them, usually there a nvidea or ati.Hope that helps :)

    All great suggestions from akavian there but I would also have to ask this are you using and LCD screen. A lot of times the those dots on an LCD can mean you have some dead pixels.

    If you are running and LCD monitor I would suggest also hooking up another monitor just so see if the dot show up in the same place. That will tell you if it is your video card or monitor. Actually may be a good idea to do that whether you are have an LCD or not.

    Could be dead pixels then I would try hooking something else up to the computer and see if you still have the green dots.
