    Ubuntu startup boot screen goes wonky

    I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed and my startup boot screen (the purple on with the Ubuntu logo and 5 dots beneath it) shows for sometime and then goes totally wonky (something like depixelated). Then the login screen shows and everything is all well. Any idea how I can fix this screen? I'm guessing it has something to do with my graphics drivers? I have an ATI card.
