Since a few weeks i see vertical small black balls on my screen when in-game. Not in dashboard, gamemenu's or game intro's / -videos. They dont move, like they are attached to my screen.

After a rod which i made using RBJtech's method, everything was ok again BUT: stil those small balls. They dont really look like artfacts i have seen on pictures or other consoles.
Does anyone know what i am looking at ?

not in dashboard but in game... that to me says it's occuring when 3D elements are being generated meaning it's likly the GPU...

alternatively it could be the scaler function and the dashboard isn't being scaled while the games are.

does it happen with EVERY game you play or just some of them?

also if you play a game like PGR 4 and take a screenshot do the black balls appear in the screenshot when viewed on your PC?

They appear in every game and stay on the same place on the screen. Havent tested it whit a screenshot, will try that.
