You have CRT monitor?

Did you configure xorg or vesa drivers? Puppy let you choose afair. You should try to set up xorg.

Best,
Ott

Do you have /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

Can you post it?

Yea, it is hard to tell in this way. I suspect there is some kind of misconfiguration/missing driver or like that issue. Don't know the particular card though. Might be able to deduce something if you post /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.log.0

I am not quite surte puppy has the latter one (can take a look later today).

Hmmm... it looks nice

Code:
 Default mode "1024x768": 65.0 MHz, 48.4 kHz, 60.0 Hz
tells me that the video card negotiates 1024x768 @60Hz which should be fine for pretty much every monitor. You may try to experiment with modeline argument but I don't know much about it.

What is it for a monitor? Is it a laptop? What does it mean -- LCD is flickering? Can you just press various autoadjustment keys? Is it using actually the native resolution?

you may experiment with "nv" driver instead of "nvidia" in xorg.conf (under "device"). You lose 3D, but as an open-source driver it has usually less issues.
