Nasty video problem!

http://forums.opensuse.org – I was watching a very high-res video this evening, when this happened to my screen http://christiane.homeip.net/opensus...enshot146.jpeg I tried killing the x-server and re-logging back in, but it was the same. I then tried turning the laptop off for a few seconds, but when I got back to the desktop I had artifacts on the screen! Not many, but definitely plenty of missing pixels. I then booted into Windows and that got rid of the problem. I'm using - openSUSE 11.2 32bit Nvidia driver v190.42 (compiled) Nvidia 8400m gs Anyone seen this before or have any ideas what is going on? It's quite scary when something persists after a power down! (Distributions)
