To find out your graphic card, just run this command from a terminal.
Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

lspci | grep VGA
After you installed a driver for your graphic card, you did reboot, right?

Try turning off compiz to see if the fixes it.

System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Visual Effects -> None.
