My NVIDIA graphic card is a 7050/610i. My problem is that after upgrading to the last NVIDIA drivers when I use fullscreen apps (or almost fullscreen) the windows goes white.

My xorg.conf file:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 270.29  (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-02.nvidia.com)  Wed Feb 23 16:38:34 PST 2011

Any idea on how to solve this?
