games always have funny stuck pixels...

Everytime I start a game on my pc, I will see a bunch of stuck pixels on the left and top of my screen:

(I had to edit the picture so that the pixels are there or else photoshop wouldn't save it correctly...)

BUT, when I'm not playing a game, there aren't any stuck pixels.

Is this supposed to happen, or is this just me?

Are you playing the games at your native resolution? It shouldn't matter but that's the only thing that comes to mind.
I get this in some games too actually. In Doom I get like 4 pixels up near the top of my screen, it's weird
It happens every once in a while in BF2 as well. I have no idea what causes it, but I don't pay much attention to it. It has yet to affect any game play.

I am indeed playing at my native resolution. But I guess it shouldn't hinder my gameplay too much. oh well.
has never happend to me or atleast ive never noticed
Happens to me in WoW. A whole bunch of pixels on the far right edge of the screen go all rainbow colored. It's not always there though, it seems to appear randomly. I am also operating the display at it's native resolution. No explanation I can come up with...
Try and different monitor and see if it does it with that. That's really the only thing i can think of besides, a driver problem. Or maybe heat.

And does it stay like that throughout the whole or just the beginning.
