weird red pixels on acer aspire 1681... what is the problem?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I get wierd red pixels appearing on the display of my acer aspire

Im pretty sure its not the LCD because it transfers to my TV-out and
it looks to be comtained to particular windows..... It seems to do it
after its been on a while.. so im thinking maybe overheating video
card?.... I noticed that if i press down on the case where my right
palm rests while typing i can momentarily make the red pixels go

any info on what this might be would be very much appreciated... Also,
if anyone knows how i might go about fixing it would be great.... its
no longer on warranty so i can't just send it back to acer.
