    Graphical Issue Upon Suspend/Logout

    I just picked up a new Laptop; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-719-_-Product

    Update! I have the same issue as this individual: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=8536868

    All these people have the same issue. I think we need a fix for this growing problem -- reported as early as OCTOBER 2009!!!
    It has an nVidia GT 230M graphics card, and I recently popped in the 190.xx stable drivers from their website. This issue has occurred on both the 185.xx and now 190.xx drivers.

    When I log out, or suspend my laptop, the graphics turn fuzzy, like a bad porno on rabbit ears. I can still use the laptop fine, but it just looks terrible. I checked the nVidia X Server Settings, and it says it detects my monitors EDID just fine, and I don't have any display issues upon resume, it just looks bad. On initial boot and after hibernate, everything is fine as well. Any ideas?

    There is already a bug submission, let me link you to it so you can register and let them know it affects you too:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...80/+bug/482456
    Fixes tried:
    Manually setting DPMS on and off.
    Manually setting the EDID grep'd from windows using SoftMCCS.
    Using completely minimal xorg.conf.
    Manually issuing "on startup" HAL service.
    Using 185.xx, 190.xx, 195.22 & 195.30 nVidia drivers.
    Using the "6 screen" fix.
    Using "suspend 2" in place of the standard suspend/logout.
    Using "sleep.sh" instead of suspend.
    Removed vbetool to no avail.
    /etc/init.d/gdm restart failed.
    New: sudo nvidia-xconfig --no-nvagp did nothing.
    New: Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True" and Option "AddARGBVisuals" "True" had no effect.

    None of these worked!

    The issue does not exist if I uninstall the nVidia drivers, so this is a DRIVER SPECIFIC ISSUE.

    Well I have isolated it to nVidia drivers. If I restart the X-Server without the drivers installed or activated, the issue doesn't occur. If I do it with the drivers installed the issue occurs. This includes 185-190 drivers. Also, I have figured out that the issue occurs during:

    1. CTRL+ALT+F1
    2. Suspend
    3. Logout

    The fuzzy/shaky graphics get worse from left to right as well.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I can confirm that 195.22 does not fix the issue. Again when I uninstalled the nVidia drivers, the issue went away. Upon installation of the new drivers, the same error occurred again.

    I tried Egghead's fix for Sony Vaio computers, but it doesn't have any effect on the display issues. Forcing the EDID did nothing.

    Is it just bad hardware+driver setup?

    I am having the same problem with my Toshiba A505 with gt230m. I tried latest beta and the problem persists. I submitted a bug to nvidia using the procedure from the manual. I haven't heard anything from nvidia yet.
