Default Re: Crashes on console switch (HP/Compaq laptop)

Ok, took me... a full week! But the bios is now updated to the latest and hopefully greatest and I never had to wipe linux from my machine (This was an exercise in ingenuity to say the least).

As suspected. No change. However, I did find out one thing. In my first ctrl-alt-fx test after upping the bios, I accidentally bumped the mouse. When I did this I saw a strange white streak across the screen - like the resolution or syncs weren't quite right. It almost looks like it's not restoring the appropriate ones when switching to a console or killing the x server. A step in the right direction at the very least. If this is the case, any suggestions on what to try?
