I've had a Lenovo laptop for the past month or so (I believe it's a G510). The past week, the laptop screen keeps showing these small white dots. I'm not sure what they are but it's very annoying (I almost can't see the screen). What should I do?

    It sounds like a graphics driver or device problem. Are the dots always in the same spot?  Are there always the same number of dots? Depending on the age of the computer it might be the LCD screen is starting to have issues.

    It is also possible that the video card is failing. Since it is also most likely sharing memory with the system, I would also make sure that the memory is seated properly, and that there is no dust and dirt in the sockets that the memory is seated.

    I think the best way is to get is examined at the nearest Lenovo service center. The problem doesn't look serious as of now. It could be a loosening of a card or cable I(or both).

    What OS is there? Is it updated with new OS? However, this is brand new and you brought it just 1-2 months ago. Definitely it is under warranty/guarantee, please don't play with this laptop, better ask the Lenovo customer care or a representative to identify the problem that is more wise decision.

    If the LED got shorted or something like that, then assuming this is a technical fault. Here is the link for Lenovo support for Technical: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en
