The NVIDIA driver 295.53 for my GeForce 120m making some things blue – especially videos.

The same thing happens with the CUDA developer driver. At first I thought it was just the CUDA one, but I guess not. The thing is, my GeForce 8800 GTS on my desktop has the same driver but no problems.

What can I do?

I read it was some flash issue, just disable the driver and you should be fine – Dr_Bunsen Jun 9 '12 at 14:22

I can't be sure about this, but sounds like it could be related to this bug.

Good luck with that.

i guess the bug is a bug on some systems and not others. – Alex Jun 9 '12 at 15:37
i learned that there is a bug in ubuntu's nvidia drivers, so i downloaded straight from Nvidia. – Alex Jun 9 '12 at 15:39
From what I know, it's not recommended to use that driver. Use drivers from official repositories only. If, for some reason, you strictly need the latest edge, try this ppa: – FuzzyQ Jun 9 '12 at 16:12
