hope it can be so simple for you !
if flash really is the cause, could you do some digging and find out which flash-version you're using ?

which nspluginwrapper, which flash version, which OS / architecture, kernel ...

more details please,

this should help the guys over at nvidia to (hopefully) reproduce and asap fix it

@kriko:

strangely it's all fine here with my 7600GT (from MSI), could you provide some steps to produce so I can see whether I can make it corrupt the screen, too ?
