What are the specs on your machine and most importantly on your video card? What model card, chipset, amount of video memory, how much RAM does your system have, is it swapping, model processor, etc? Are you running open source X drivers or proprietary? Accelerated?

Tell ya what I would do at this point. Go ask for suggestions at the nVidia forums. I usually get pretty good info there:

I don't believe you should be seeing that problem. Possibly a bad card? Hopefully the folks on that forum will have an idea.

I'll go and ask for help on the nvidia forums, but I can already tell you that it's probably not a bad card since I've seen this with my old geforce3 ti200 too, I didn't notice it with the 6600 I had for a while but then again I didn't really use it for a long time before my younglings made me give it to them :)

And like always, thanks a lot Void Main <Ice9 bows deeply> :wink:
