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
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.http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=139657
All these people have the same issue. I think we need a fix for this growing problem -- reported as early as OCTOBER 2009!!!
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?
Fixes tried:There is already a bug submission, let me link you to it so you can register and let them know it affects you too:
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.
