Default Re: Nvidia go7600 on Asus laptop

Yes, like everybody else here I have an ASUS A6T(-AP005H) - with an installed gentoo 2.4.16 Linux system. I also have the same GL-problems that the rest of you have described.

The interesting thing is, however, that I occasionally get the same graphics problems when I run Windows XP; not always, but sometimes when I least expect it (maybe when a GL-screensaver is activated). That is the screen becomes kind of grayish with horizontal jagged lines. In difference to when running Linux it is mostly possible to press the power button in Windows XP, and let the machine turn off gracefully. It is maybe worth pointing out that I only use Windows when I want to run Skype.

That is, like the user in add #61 reports I'm not sure it is a Linux only problem.

In difference to other laptops I've had this one gets really warm also on the top (in particular right next to the upper right corner of the touchpad).
