Did you tried to install additional drivers?You can find them in system>administration.You can also type in terminal

lspci | grep VGA

and post output here.Maybe that info will be helpful to someone to give you advice how to continue.

i typed that in and it says
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corportation NV18 [GeForce4 MX - nForce GPU] (rev a3)

will have a look for additional drivers

it says 'NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version 96)
this driver is activated but not currently in use.... HOW DO I USE IT?
