installed fedora, display garbled after launching some apps
I just recently installed Fedora Core 1, everything looks fine, works fine (somewhat). Very newbie here.
Problem is, the display is ok, so long as I do *not* run apps and whatever. For example, launching, say, OpenOffice causes a lot of 'trails' left over around the screen, like footprints - this is caused by the window borders.
When logging out, the whole screen goes garbled. And hangs.
In another situation, the screen saver came on and played havoc with the screen - a lot of lines and some flashes.
I can activate my lcd's menu, and that doesn't get affected - so I'm thinking maybe it's the graphic card, monitor drivers, or with x? I haven't installed any specific drivers yet...
- Aopen GeForce 4 MX440SE (running in 4x AGP) 64mb
- Samsung SyncMaster 152T (LCD panel) @ 1024x768, 60Hz.
*** The display setting driver is "LCD Panel 1024x768". Connected to graphic card via analog cable (standard vga one... card has no dvi output unfortunately)
Refresh rate seems to be in ok range - it just garbles up if I do *something*, nothing goes wrong when I just leave the system alone (that's NOT how a system should be used....)
Please assist as possible - I haven't found a similar prob in the forums.
