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


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 ?
3.19.2-plus+ w. zram, ZFS, Btrfs; checksums>others

Gentoo all the way
