    Screen display playing tricks on X


    hi im using the latest kernel and fluxbox with xorg of course. I have an MSI nvidia 6600 card.

    My problem is that X plays nicely for some time (maybe hours) and then randomly (especially when i use firefox + amsn) starts displaying random colors all over

    something like these colors on the pic here

    firefox does not refresh when its brought to focus, neither does any console so i remedy this by restarting xdm but it happens all the time its hard for me to explain it better i just hope someone has had or dealt with the same problem so he can help me fix it.
