Don't know if anyone else has run into this problem before. Sometimes when i boot up Fedora 9 (happened to me on 8 as well), the log in screen will flicker uncontrollably. It almost looks like a TV that is trying to receive an antenna reception, but the antenna isn't quite pointing in the right direction.

Anyhow, does anyone know what might be causing the problem and how i might go about fixing it?

Thanks for any help.

Looks like a driver problem. Do you use native Xorg drivers for your video card?

Right now i am using native, I will try and install those and post back. Thanks for the info. (i figured if the screen was normal half of the time, it wasn't driver related)
