The desktop it's blurry, change colors when you move the mouse pointer, the icons cannot be seen and also the background.

First I have tried updating from ubuntu 8.10 and I got this problem.

Later on, I installed from zero Ubuntu 9.04 and it happens exactly the same problem.

I have tried to change resolution (it starts with 1920x1200), but when I select another resolution, automatically ubuntu restarts session and uses the same resolution as before.

Also there are no propietary drivers to install.

What kind of video card do you have?

If you have no clue: open a terminal and type lspci, you should be able to see your video card in that list.

The graphic card it's an ATI Mobility Radeon x300
