Default Abit Siluro FX5200 & RH9 - damn green dots

I successfully installed the latest nVidia drivers and can boot into KDE on the latest non-beta Red Hat. The problem is that there are several mostly green little pixels on the screen that shake a bit. They are mostly on the right side of the screen.

I have an LCD and I think that the sync is correct. The resolution is right. Also, I have a dual-boot with XP and the screen looks fine there. This problem only started after I installed the nVidia driver. It worked fine with generic driver.

Any ideas on what could be the problem?

Thanks from a Linux newbie.

Maybe you are clocking the LCD too fast. Try setting 60Hz vertical refresh rate.

Default fixed it

You' were right. Setting the refresh to 60 fixed it. Many thanks.
