Thumbs Down

Hey guys,

I recently got Linux Mint (version 12) on my Toshiba Satellite A100 laptop and I'm really say that it's a very cool operating system. Anyways, I recently got one particular problem with my operating system.

Whenever I tried to do an ALT+TAB in either the Firefox web browser, the "Home" folder or whatever that I'm doing, the screen often messes up when the ALT+TAB is performed. In order to combat that particular problem, I periodically have to press the Windoze key and the D key altogether to get rid of that effect.

From my own prediction, it could lie in the memory in my laptop or other related stuff. Also, I don't have any dedicated graphics for that laptop. The display memory is "shared" with the main laptop's memory.

Do you have any suggestions on how can I stop that "warped" effect on my display from happening?
