When I use my computer, these black dots appear, and sometimes when I'm watching youtube or a video on my computer, it'll crash and say "display driver AMD display has been recovered". Can someone help me?
Back to the start.
1 do they appear in normal use of your pc.
2 do they appear in all YouTube videos.
3 do they appear if watching other video's.
4 is your pc using the version of Windows it came with or an upgraded version.

1 do they appear in normal use of your pc.
- Occasionally when I'm running a game and maybe just doing something on the desktop like making new folders, etc.
2 do they appear in all YouTube videos.
- Yeah they do and sometimes the youtube video screen will become green and u can only hear the audio
3 do they appear if watching other video's.
- Yes.
4 is your pc using the version of Windows it came with or an upgraded version.
- Yes.

IMO they appear to be artifacts from either a failing video card or one that is overheating.

If you have the Recovery disk/s which you should have made or still have the Recovery partition, access it, read the available option, making a note of them then post your findings.
If using Recovery partition, watch as your pc starts to see what key is needed. Usually F11
