Screen FLASHING in X
 
when i'm in X, sometimes the screen suddenly flashes black...then it waits a second, and then flashes black again. it will stay black until i move the mouse, and it will come back to normal for just a moment and then go black again.

if i leave X, the console is normal, but when i restart X, the problem is still there...i have to reboot my entire machine just go get it to go away.

i'm running:

athlon 950, 376 MB RAM
NVIDIA TNT2
Mandrake 8.0 with a 2.4.14 kernel
xfree86 4.0.1

anyways, this is really, really, really bad...and any help would be GREATLY appreciated...thanks.
