I get artifacts around my cursor for the mouse on screen and have artifacts appearing all over my screen.
Monitor is a Benq FP91G+ 18' i think
I have tried resetting video drivers checking refresh rates and changed settings on monitor...nothing helps, this happens on web pages, during online gaming and when just surfing. Is my monitor no good or there is something else i need to do. Running Windows XP home. Sometimes it is not much on screen other times a lot...small dots all over in diff colours, when i scroll they can go into lines.

Single Pixel lines indicate a failed Circut board in the screen. Although this being a DV series it could be a failed motherboard. You can test this by plugging the laptop into an external monitor and seeing if the artifacts you see are on the external monitor. If not, change the screen.
The red line could be caused by the cable, or it could be a problem
with the monitor. Pretty easy to test, though, just get another cable
and swap it out.Sometimes the cable that snakes through the
hinge gets worn causing display artifacts. Try flexing the hinge and
see if the behavior changes.
In windows xp go into start menu, then into control panel then click on appearance and themes, then move your mouse over to mouse pointers click on it , uncheck "enhance pointer precision, and click apply, that will stop the mouse from acting crazy, this will work with dell mouse pointers and most.
