I am having a strange problem on my Dell Inspiron 1505 laptop. When starting the computer the grub screen flickers or every few seconds. I don't know if it would be called a flicker. The screen actually superimposes another menu over the existing menu.

It starts on the right side of the screen and then moves to where it normally sits. This "flicker" refreshes every few seconds and looks very unprofessional when starting up around other users.

Does anyone know what's happening here?
