My Mini has started putting Green Pixel's on the Monitor

I don't know which one is doing it -- i only have one Monitor

The pixels seem to be more in the dark contrast area's

This is more the monitor than the mini. I never heard this problem from a mac mini at all.Borrow another mini and see if the problem still happens.

Good idea. Monitors are not that expensive today. Go for it.

I don't know what kind of monitor it is, but if it's a flat panel, maybe rubbing it gently will fix it.
