My monitor LM17sb develops red dots in the grey areas which come and goes. Can I fix this

It sounds to me like there could be a short-circuit developing in the panel, or the wire that connects the monitor cable to the inner panel, since it comes and goes. I hope that monitor is under warranty. If not, you can either accept that the monitor will occasionally short, or you can replace it. Fortunately, you can get 17 inch lcd monitors for about 80 bucks, rather than 150 just a few years ago. Currently, there is no way to fix a broken or shorting monitor without replacing it or having it repaired.

Yes, but the cost is not worth it. If you get it apart you will no doubt find a couple of bulging capacitors. Dell site has the disassembly instructions.

I have dell 1907fpt, the lcd screen powers up for just 2 or 3 seconds.

The backlight might be bad. As far as I know, there isn't a way to replace that, so you'll have to get a new monitor.
