Hi

I have never seen anything like this! I woke up this morning, and turned on my White iMac, and the background is covered in moving red pixels, but only on a certian shade of grey/black. When I make a drag box over it, it goes away, but it is strange. It is also the same when I browse the internet, and I tried taking a screenshot of the problem but it just looks normal on another computer so I think it must be a screen problem!

I have tried restarting, and nothing. Any tips? I am going to ring apple in a bit to try sort it out!

Sounds like your system had the measles.
