X issue

I've just completed an amd64 ubuntu install on a new computer.

The video card is nvidia 6200 and the motherboard is the tyan k8we.

All looks very good initially.

If you open firefox, for example, it opens fine. If you scroll down the
scrolling area becomes "snow" like the static on the old tv sets.

If I open evolution the task buttons are not always there. They "appear"
if you run the mouse over them. If you try and get email the scrolling
area "snows up" like firefox.

Other apps are similarly afflicted.

Searching google appears to be a common issue, however nothing I've
found works.

Ideas, solutions, comments, urls, etc great fully received.

Some logs below, at least parts that seam to indicate problems.

Regards,

Ashley
