KDE 4 on Fedora 9 x86_64 unstable on nVidia Gforce Go 7600


I have an HP dv9000t laptop with an nVidia Gforce Go 7600 GPU with 512 MB dedicated graphics memory. I have downloaded and installed the latest video driver from the nvidia website. Nice driver package installed clean, configuration to an external display was easy.

The problem is ever since the gpu driver was updated KDE runs very slow and is extremely unstable, crashes wallpaper disappearing etc. Vista runs faster believe it or not.

Has anyone experienced this with KDE and nVidia?

System specs:

HP dv9000t CTO 17" Widescreen notebook
Intel T7200 Core 2 duo 2.0 GHz CPU
nVidia Gforce Go 7600 w/ 512 MB dedicated graphics memory
7200 RPM Seagate Momentous Sata II HDD
Fedora 9 x86_64
