Doesnít look like a graphic card issue its more look as if the display has gone bad. Did you checked it with the external monitor to see if the display is working fine , and if it does then we have to see the graphic card setting

I thing you are have the problem which in the technical term referred as the bleeding in LCD. Well I would like to suggest you that you should update video drivers or try to connect external monitor and see the same thing happen even then with the external monitor if yes then the graphic card will be working fine but if same problem is appearing on the external monitor as well then the problem is with the LCD

Well it doesnít matter what the color of my desktop background is I see the little orangeish/pink and some blue ones now. I have reinstalled my windows to see if that works but apparently the lines and dots are back on the screen . I have not yet tried the external monitor so will be post about that on sometime latter.

I was having the same issue on my laptop and it was very frustrating at that time but the is a way to solve the issue all you need to do is go to the Display settings and changing DPI from 96 to 120. That will do it your problem will be solve by doing this . hope this help
