Since no-one has taken a bite at this...

The red dots over the top of the screen seems to indicate that either your
screencard has failed for some reason (or the connection to the screen) or
your screencard is grossly misconfigured. I have seen similar behaviour when
my old laptop's screencard came loose and I needed to reset it.

To reconfigure your s-server (graphics settings) run this command: *sudo
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Follow the promts as good as you can guestimate your settings should be and
you should sort out your login.

Please let me know if this has sorted your problem.
