Have weird pixelated looking (red and blue) "bugs" on my computer monitor that have been there for over a month. Most of the the time they are stationary, but every once in a while they will flash. I've updated all drivers, tried all anti-virus products and nothing. Below is a screen shot of these bugs. Thanks..

Its to either replace the video card or monitor. Can you try the monitor on another machine with the same cable?

Thanks for your reply. The video card is not very old and the comp is only about 5 years old. However, at the moment I am not able to try it on another comp.
