Default Blinking red dots on monitor?

I have my PS3 hooked up to my monitor via an HDMI-DVI cable. For some reason, only when I play my PS3 there are these tiny flashing red dots in the background. I was thinking it was a problem with my monitor at first, but there are no flashing red dots in the background when I use my PC on the same monitor.

On some occasions, my monitor will randomly go gray, kind of like what happens when your cable has no signal and the tv goes all static.

Here are some videos of exactly what will happen:

1. Screen goes gray - YouTube
2. Red dots on monitor? - YouTube

My monitor is an hp 2010i monitor 20 inches

I haven't been able to find anyone who knows what's wrong. Anyone have any ideas? If you have any questions please let me know
