graphics problem


I dont know how to describe it,but Ill try. Im using Debian Lenny on my notebook Dell Inspiron 1520 with Nvidia 8400GS M. Problem is, that Ive installed nvidia graphics from nvidia homepage,than compiz and after 30min - 1h using in my gnome menu when I selected option there was selected more options at the same time. Or in my terminal I was writing text but Ive seen nothing. When I turnout compiz, Its working normally. Where could be problem?

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, see whjat driver it finds and uses. _Do_Not_ copy me half a mile ox the log - you read it and you tell us. What is compiz? FYI, this works best thias way
1. You complain about some problem and give us information on it.
2. We ask questions and tell you to try stuff and do stuff.
3. You answer the questions, do the stuff we suggested and clearly tell us the result.
4. Some genius shouts 'eureka' , makes a diagnosis, and tells you how to sort it.

We're currently stuck on 1 :-/.

...what driver it finds and uses. <-- what driver do you mean? graphics? version of this driver? version of xserver? I don't understand you.

...What is compiz? <-- oukej, I say it othervise. If graphical effects are turned on, in gnome menu are selected more options than one. If I turn it out, it woks normally.

Sorry if I am unclear. Post the output of this command
glxinfo |grep render

So the problem is only with gnome special effects turned on. Ok , turn them on and explain what happens on the screen - just write what the screen looks like. Does it play a youtune video?

I know that command and it was first posted command after driver instaled, render is

and yes, video is ok. it plays. there is problem just in gnome menu when I select option, f.e. applications -> graphics, the are more applications and when I move with mouse in menu, the are selected more applications at once.

But yesterday after installing some libs, its working normaly. I dont know why

So the highlighted backgrounds on the menu items don't not go away when you move the mouse off of them?

Does this mean it's fixed? Then mark the thread as solved.
