I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with the Rt kernel provided in synaptic. I am using nvidia drivers 256.35 and have an asus g51j-a1 laptop with a 280m graphics card.

Now that that is out of the way, any time the screen gets dark i have weird horizontal lines that do not move and are slightly lighter than the scene is. This happens whether i am in a game, watching a movie, or have set my brightness down using compiz. As you can see with the picture below the lines can get very annoying. I did this just to show the lines.
