I am new so sorry if this has already been posted.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 1115-S107 laptop, with a ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY graphic card. When I use my laptop some windows show up distored, there will be dotted lines and black strips and I can't make out what the window messages say, also my laptop will freeze completely, I am unable to move the mouse, or use the keyboard. The only way to do anything is to restart. This problem goes away if I am running off of a live CD, but once ubuntu is installed the problems come right back. I have tried different versions or ubuntu but there is no change. I don't know if this helps but I can't run windows at all. It seems to freeze even faster and every screen is distorted. Any help would be great. Again sorry if this has already been asked.
