Hey everyone, new guy here on the forums as well as with linux.

I have googled the hell out of my problem and I may have missed something but the only things I see that are similiar to my problem is that the screen flickers for movies and what not.

My problem is that I just burned a copy of Ubuntu 10.10 to my disk and when it loads up, the screen starts flickering like crazy from the very beginning... Here is a short video of what it's doing.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JNx0oKh1a0

Just to make sure I wasn't doing anything wrong, I downloaded another version of Linux just to test it and it did the same exact thing. I have read that there are commands and what not you need to change when you are in linux to fix the problem but I can't even install it.

I am using a Radeon ATI HD 5700 series video card

I would appreciate ANY help.... I'm dieing to get on and learn Linux... Thanks :)

Is it the same for your copy of windows, or will it only do it on the linux installations?
