View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP G62x - display(compiz) constant failing

May 11th, 2011, 09:10 PM
I have a brand new HP G62x, 11.04 64bit installed fresh.

I have only been using Gnome Classic rather than Unity but I don't think that effects this issue. I have been searching here and askubuntu but haven't found a solution. I'm not exactly sure what keywords I should be using.

The problem is compiz seems to fail every 15 minutes or so. The screen flickers for a moment then recovers.(sometimes)

Usually what causes it is -

- drag and drop anything
- pop up dialog windows
- menu options that drop down
- and often simply moving a window on screen

Sometimes when compiz doesn't restart itself I am forced to drop to the console(ctrl+alt+f1) to restart gdm.

I have a very similar issue on my desktop. The graphcs ran flawlessly from 8.04-10.10 until the upgrade to 11.04. I thought the issue was with the nVidia drivers but now that I'm having the same problem here I doubt it.

I can't imagine that I am the only one with this issue.

here's a bit of the lspci -v
