i have this problem when i open I.E and scroll down a page with letters or pictures it flickers

in ubuntu video files flickers and webbrowser too

I NOTICED WHEN CANCELLING VIDEOEFFECT IN UBUNTU THIS PROBLEM DISSAPEARS but i want to cure it not dodge it

its so annoying because i dont know the cause

my speculation is: direct X or java
but i tried everything to fix it (reinstalled and all the stuff)

i will be happy if some of you guys give me helpful feedback

I would suggest it is a driver problem in both Windows and Ubuntu. If you are using the default drivers in both OS's you will get the problems you are describing. Could paste the output in your next post:


sudo lshw -C video

THe above command must be run in a Applications-->Accessories-->Terminal.
