Unhappy Mouse/display problems

I'm not sure if this is a hardware or a software question. I'm also not sure if this is related to RedHat 9 or Gnome. Anytime I use my scroll button a copy of the cursor is left where it originally was. If I drag a window, the window leaves trails that don't go away. Randomly small squares of other windows appear in new windows. Annoying things like that keep happening. Does anyone have any ideas where this is coming from, my monitor, video card, mouse, or soemthing else????

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

This seems to be a driver problem (not the right one for your graphic card)

You will have to give us more information on this:

1. Graphic card (chipset if necessary)
2. Xserver version
3. X driver (version and so)
