    Flickering Screen Problem on RHL 9


    Hi,

    I really dont know d cause of this but I suspect my NVidia GeForce MX400 card.

    It used to worked fine on d same linux box. I'd noticed this that after like every 5 days usage, it starts to flick.......then I will reinstall linux.

    It also works 4 a few days and started flickerin again. The reason I 'd 2 instal is cause am running by BSc project (network simulation) on it. So, I couldnt wait 4 solution from forums online.

    But, right now, am ready to sit down wit it.

    I ll appreciate any ideas as to how to solve this issue. FYI, if I go 2 any shell (CTRL+SHIFT + F[1-6]). They also flickers. Dunno.

    I guess d first soln is 2 change runlevel 2 3........however, grub is provin difficult to change runlevel to 3.

    Note:
    I cant enter GUI since XServer will not start. It flickers just before displayin d GUI login page. It neva displays d GUI page. It flicker showing d root@localhost console.
    ll also appreciate any ideas.

    Thnx.

    any particular reason why you are using such an old version of Red Hat? Sometimes updates fix your problems
