Alright. Can we PLEASE get on with the original discussion? Talking about how nvidia sucks does not help, talking about how nvidia should opensource their drivers does not help, and talking about how the drivers are great and we are in the minority certainly does not either. The fact is, there IS a problem, and this thread is about finding a SOLUTION to that problem.
It's quite possible this is a hardware problem, but getting help in diagnosing it would be good.
