Video problem on Toshiba laptop debian install

I managed through the debian 3.0 install, and when I rebooted and logged in, I found these 7 patches of strange video about 1 inch tall and about a third of the way up my screen. Each patch is like a fuzzy replica of the entire desktop.

I tried WindowMaker, Fluxbox, and twm - they show up regardless of the window manager.

Any ideas?

The machine is a Toshiba Satellite 2595CDS
I can get into detailed display specs if necessary.
