Hi!

I'm on a brand new Dell Insprion with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 and running Lucid. I've been googling for a solution for 2 days now but no luck.

I have recommended drivers installed. Compiz works perfectly, but when I lunch an application (tried torcs, 0ad, bzflag ) the screen starts flashing and makes it impossible to do anything. I even had some flashing when trying to watch movies in fullscreen.

The strangest thing is with torcs, when the screen only flashes up for a second when i hit a key, otherwise i see my desktop.

I really need your help.

I turned of some of compiz's plugins and everything works now.
