Okay everything has been fine before I got windows 7. Just now I started to receive red dots on my screen. Some green too. Is this a known driver problem for 64-bit windows 7? I googled but didn't find anything. Idle temps are 47 c never exceeds 60c. My 8800gtx did this when it crapped out but it did it a lot worse. 9800gtx+ is what I got for rmaing and its possibly dieing.

switching OSes shouldn't kill any of your hardware, I would try to update the drivers, if they're up to date, then try rolling back to an earlier version...

If the pixels are the same color in the same exact spot each and every time you start up your computer, it might also be dead pixels in your monitor.
