screen pixilates sometimes

Asked by Cheryl on 2012-03-20

The screen will pixilate and make words impossible to read. It happens mostly when looking at merchandise sites on the internet. I would like to reinstall the video driver, but don't know how to begin. I am completely new to Ubuntu and am not too computer savvy. Thank you.

Terrence Bruff suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #17: “ATI Video card binary driver installation”.

Before you use that post tell me what video card you have and what version of Ubuntu you are running to find out what video card you are running to find out search for terminal (konsole in kubuntu) and type lspci in the box and then look for an option that looks like this VGA compatible controller. Please respond with this information before you follow the FAQ above. Thank You.

Sorry for the multiple posts I am new at this, but can you also try and take a picture of your screen and post it so i can see what you are talking about.

Can you help with this problem?
