Got a Gateway M520 series laptop, 3 Ghz Pentium 4. Once in awhile I will see pink pixel lines that shadow my desktop image or any image and sometimes on a webpage. If I restart the small pink dots go away or change. I have updated my drivers on my Intel graphics card. It is an Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME adapter.

So they come and go. I wiggle the screen and they don't change. Sometimes there are more than others. I just switched out memory sticks and I still see them.

Any ideas? I have unistalled and reinstalled from device manager as well to try to hide my pink dots. They are quite faint but I can still see them well.

I guess whatever the color of the desktop is the color of the dots. I got orangeish/pink and some blue ones now. I just reinstalled Windows last nite to check out my dots and they are back. I have not tried an external yet but will.

Solved by going into Display settings and changing DPI from 96 to 120 and they went away, go figure.
