hey guys

i really need your help, i hope someone has seen this before. i have only had my laptop for about a week now. Whenever i put any load on my graphics card, say a game or even the windows rating my screen gets all speckled with red pixels. i will start to run a game and within 20 seconds of doing so the screen just gets covered in red pixels, everything that should be black is red. When i close the game it persists and then slowly dissipates. i have installed the latest drivers but, i really do think its a physical problem because whenever this happens if i tap my desk the red specks will flicker.

If it takes time to appear and fade it sounds heat related. Something related to the video system might be loose or damaged. I would exchange it with the store for a new one.

That is a good observation that indicates you are experiencing a hardware, rather than software issue. I agree with @xeromist's recommendation.

Don't let them try to push you into a warranty repair or anything like that. You have every right to expect a unit that isn't defective out-of-the-box.
