Those dots are indicators for failing/failed RAM. I would return this unit as well...
Are you using Intel's original power adapter, or some other source of power?
I'm using Intel's adapter that came with it.
I'm returning it back to Amazon, I'm just so disappointed that its the second device, for something that much expensive you would think it would work and last a long time!
