Is anyone else seeing any video instability? I get the occasional screen flicker with pixel corruption flash across the screen for a second or so.
hardware is a Compaq CQ61 laptop with 2GB of RAM.
lshw gives:

Hardware Drivers finds no available drivers to install but on previous systems not using Kernel Mode Setting an Nvidia driver would have been installed.
Bu then again maybe I have an impending hardware fault developing.
Any comments?

err ... ignore the comment about Nvidia drivers. That would have been on my desktop machine.
See the lspci -vv text attached.

I assume you never received a reply to this, right? I'm having the same problem. Were you ever able to fix it?
