GO to ADDITIONAL DRIVERS and load the proprietary driver for your system. You can select unity (2D) in the session box (on the loginscreen) just to be able to install and update your driver; then revert back to using the regular unity startup once your driver is installed and/or updated. If it's already installed and it offers a DEV version. Go with the DEV version as the stable version is not wokring for you.
