I am experiencing the same issue as in topic http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=591747 (The topic is in archive so i cant bump it)
Did anyone come up with any solution so far?

Did you just start having this issue with Karmic or is it ongoing? Have you tried disabling compiz effects? What driver are you using?

Happens with Karmic 9.10, using nvidia version 185.
As to compiz, i will try disabling it and post about results.

Your video is nVidia Go 7600? May want to check for compatibility with the 185 driver - might not be supported. Have you tried open source (nv) driver?

I have exactly the same issue -- geforce 7600 go on my old laptop.
It seems that screen blinks when the nvidia powermizer scales the performance in either direction
