MSI laptop, NVIDIA Geforce 8200M G, Ubuntu 11.04, persistent screen tearing
I can't understand what's going on. First, it was just when the card was plugged into an HDTV via the HDMI output. Now, I can't get it to stop with the main screen. Either that, or it was just there and I didn't notice it until now. I've tried just about every setting I could find, even gone so far as to reinstall Ubuntu. I don't know what's been going on with it. What's going on?
I've attached three bug report files, one from each bug-report.sh file I was able to find. Be patient with me, I'm new to Linux. Two are for the drivers linux provided (173 and current), and the third is the proprietary Nvidia driver (unknown). I believe the third one is the one that's being used right now.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
