    Errors rendering 3D graphics

    Hi... I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to Linux in general. I've had Ubuntu for about 2 months now, and on the whole. I've enjoyed my experience. However. I seem to have problems rendering 3D graphics. When I attempt to run anything with 3D graphics. I get something like this.. (Which is better than before... it used to just be an "invisible window") http://yfrog.com/0yscreenshotwprp

    Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong, and how I could fix it? I'm not sure how to get the specs of my computer, as I got it for christmas a few years back, and have no idea what model it is or what cards are in it, etc.

    check you have all the updated drivers for your graphics cards.

    try going to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

    it'll tell you if theres a better driver for your graphics card available and let you install it.
