    Problems with crazy choppy graphics on Toshiba laptop, please help!

    Hey guys,

    First off I am a 2 week old noob for Ubuntu, basically pissed off that the laptop I purchased from best buy came preloaded with windows vista. XP installed fine with plenty of blue screens during usage so I installed linux and said I will learn it or throw my laptop in the f'king garbage.....please take it easy on me!!! So enough with the bio, basically I am alittle worried about graphics quality with Ubuntu and/or the driver that I have installed. I installed google earth for linux(work requires, for cellphone tower spectrum) and when I load it all the graphics are choppy as hell and you can't read anything, I figured it was my driver or something I have no idea. I am open for all input!!! If I need to install a codec or something please let me know. Tech specs on my laptop: toshiba satellite a205-s5800 with some crack *** video card that intel makes.

    Please advise......

    -Brandon

    In Terminal:
    gedit /etc/x11/xorg.conf
    and show the output.
