Are you using Unity, Unity-2D, gnome shell, or gnome classic?

comment Display corruption when switching virtual terminals in Linux
Also please note using nomodeset really is just sweeping the problem under the carpet, not actually fixing it. Anyone else with this same hardware is likely going to have the same problem and will have to figure out how to change this too. If you forward the bug upstream as outlined in my answer, you can get it fixed for real and for everyone, which would be way more awesome.

Well, it's not really a side effect... modeset's purpose is to set the high res mode on the console, so setting nomodeset is supposed to turn it off. If it fixes the corruption, well that is the side effect. :-)

Another thing to try is to plug the computer into a different outlet, in case it might be a grounding problem.

comment Why my Computer re-starts at time of power outage?
You could get a wattmeter to hook in between the UPS and your computer, which might show the power dip.
