I don't know. I had the problem only on a brand new desktop computer I
built for myself over spring break. I tried (all amd64 versions) CentOS,
Mepis, Mandriva, OpenSUSE, Fedora 7 test2, Ubuntu Feisty Beta, and
Debian Etch (final). Every single one of them displayed the same
problem. Sometimes I could fix it by holding the cursor over a window
and doing Alt-Tab, sometimes I had to log off and back in again.
Eventually I discovered the "noapic pci=off" command and that solved it
for all of them. The computer is currently running Ubuntu Feisty final
and I still had to go in and add the command.

The computer has an Abit NF-M2S motherboard that has onboard nVidia
chipset for everything except the gigabit ethernet which is Realtek. The
video is nVidia GeForce 6100 and the rest is nforce 405. But who know
which part is the culprit? All I can say is try it on your laptop and
see what happens.
