ASUS Laptop Graphix screwup

Laptop: ASUS F3SC-AP206C - T7250 SR
OS: Linux Mandriva 2008 Powerpack+
After an update the screen went from wide screen to a rectangular screen. The whole graphical environment is slow. When opening a window, it takes the laptop 2 - 3 times before it is drawn on the screen. (literally the window opens in slices, diagonally)
When I try to type something, it tends to put it double.
(e.g. when I press the h, it will give me hh.)

I think there's a driver issue here, so I tried to reinstall the nvidia driver. However, it doesn't wanna. (keeps asking to install the rpm of the kernel-devel. didn't say which one ...)

Does anybody has a similar problem? does anybody know a sensible solution?
I hope it isn't a hardware failure ...

Thanks in advance :)

Perhaps you should post to the mandriva 2008 powerpack help forum:
