This is most often a BIOS bug with C51 GPUs. First verify that you're using the latest BIOS. Then check in the BIOS for the amount of VRAM/Framebuffer that is allocated, and increase it.

I've a ASUS M2NPV-VM, With my older bios i used a 128Mo framebuffer.
I just update my bios and I can incease it to 256Mo, that I did. Despite, I've again this graphic bug.

But i made a really important error in my topic, I use SWCURSOR option !!!

because with HWCURSOR option I can't see mouse's cursor.

Exclamation Re: Compiz+NewDrivers+HWCURSOR = graphic bug

Bandaid fix...

1. Enable SWCursor or disable HWCursor in your xorg.conf
2. Start X, I did a hard reboot on fedora here...
3. go back to your xorg.conf and enable HWCursor
4. restart X (CTRL+ALT+Backspace)

you should have the HW accelerated mouse now without artifacts behind it. This was the only fix I have been able to muster with the new nvidia beta drivers and new fedora core 6 update. You will have to do this every time if either your mouse cursor disappears, or you are getting artifacts.

Is there a fix for this yet? I am tempted to vear off the path of YUM and download the latest drivers but then my YUM updates for Nvidia will be broken. Not a big loss if all works well on the first shot. Does the latest nvidia release (9746)address and fix this cursor problem?

Currently have 9631 installed. The latest release from fedora 6 updates.
