Description

It was requested by Diver at http://haiku-os.org/community/forum/video_display_wavy_85hz that I should open this ticket.

I am very new to Haiku. I have now installed the 44220 build and notice a great deal of "waviness" on the video. I would think the power supply in the monitor is going bad, except that under Windows XP no such problem occurs. Or at least it is hardly noticeable.

Hardware ASUS P5G4IC-M Motherboard VGA on Motherboard, Intel G41 Express Intel e7500 chip

I had the refresh rate at 85Hz (which is my normal setting for Windows), and on a whim decided to lower it. I changed it to 75Hz and the waviness went away. This is a an acceptable workaround for the time being, but it seems to point out a weakness in the video drivers, imho.

I am attaching both the current syslog and syslog.old, as the older log applies more closely to the time when the problem occurred.
