I have just installed the nvidia drivers and pretty much sorted thanks to the help from the guys here. I do however have a flickering white overlay on top of the display. Its pretty much impossible to look att eh screen any longer than a few minutes, due to the strobe effect. There is also a darker band at the bottom about 3 inches tall.
I'm running a nvidia 8200 card
ubuntu 8.10 64 bit
I am an absolute beginner, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time
