Are they distributed all over the screen or concentrated in one spot? Are they there all the time or only when you run a particular piece of software?

no they are distributed around the screen and on the bar of programs but they sometimes go then reappear

Sounds like the monitor is not firing properly. Can you attach another monitor to your PC to test this theory?

Ah! The only thing I can think is that you have a number of pixels that are not changing colour properly. Not yet dead pixels but perhaps not far from dead?
