Snapshot of screen when the bug appears (yes nothing on screenshot)

Description of problem: When there is no wifi connection ALL white pixels on screen turns black. When I connect to wifi and go to console (ctrl+alt+f2) and back (sometimes you have to repeat it twice) then everything works fine. 
Desktop effects don't work and when wifi is connected it turns screen white, when not, black.

I've attached a screenshot, as you can see (or actually can't see) it's likely to be driver problem, because nothing appears on the screenshot. All the white turns black without wifi connection, with white, irregular borders around letters.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fresh install of Fedora 10 ( first boot, just after installation ).

How reproducible: Install Fedora 10 on Toshiba Satellite A200-1GS.
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300] (rev a1)
04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN Network Connection (rev 61)

Bug appears on login screen as well.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install
2. Boot
3. Bug Appears Out-Of-The-Box
Actual results:
Don't work.

Expected results:
To work well, especially it works on SUSE and Kubuntu.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf, if available) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

And we would certainly need /var/log/dmesg and /var/log/messages as well.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

If I only knew it yesterday, but I deleted this installation and now I'm back on my openSUSE, so sorry about that but I no longer have this logs.

Best Regards,
