Picture of log in stand by.
Description of problem:
I run an Athlon X2 4800+ on an 690G board (ATI x1250 onboard graphics). You can see from the pictures the corruption is very peculiar.
Even more interesting is the fact that once I log in, all the windows (apps) that open are absolutely fine (not corrupted) and soon enough the whole screen becomes uncorrupt. I need to reload the bg image though.
Also the text seems to stay corrupted (check detail on bar). I can change the font rendering from Medium to Light or High and it goes away (grayscale) but comes back with medium. If I change it rgb it goes away.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot computer
2. View log in screen
3. Login to Gnome (not Classic)
Corruption of graphics with triangles missing from parts of the display. Fonts also corrupted

Some fonts still corrupt. This can be fixed once I change fonts rendering to High from Medium, but comes back if I set it back to medium.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining

bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'

of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
