window traiils on very fast machine


I have recently installed the AMD-64 version of Unbuntu 6.0.6 on my HP Pavilion 1430n (Athlon 3800-X2, Nvidia GeForce 6150LE chip set, 1GB RAM, 250GB HD). In spite of the speed of the machine i get slow window refreshes and "window trails" when dragging the windows across the screen. Is there a SIMPLE solution to the problem? Would another distro work better?

Simple is in the eye of the beholder.

How much memory is on your videocard? Do you know if it's using software or direct rendering?

I had this problem using the standard xorg "nv" driver. It went away when I used the drivers from nvidia.com.
Which drivers are you using?
