did not help. I tried to copy the driver from Mandrake (where it worked
correctly) and it did not help either, still the same problem. I think
it's not driver dependant for me, it has to be somewhere else than in a
driver. I also tried 4.1.0 driver, which was displaying the colors
correctly, but it did not work either.

Maybe you could help me fix the freezing bug in 4.1.0, which works :). 
The problem occurs, when I move windows, resize them or play a movie (so
in some intensive situation). Then the screen turns while with several
black vertical lines. It's a hard freeze (can not ping the machine,
the keyboard does not react). Then sometimes when I push the reset
button, I have to press it again, because system starts booting without
video card initialized (or at least I don't see the display).
