It's easy to tell what the problem is in the picture, but in Chrome when I re-size the window everything kind of .... drags. Only Chrome does this.

I've tried the 64 bit version of Chrome, the 32 bit version, and now Chromium. I got Chromium from the software center.

Also, I'm really new to Linux.

  • Lenovo Y400
  • Intel Core i7
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M

I just tried installing an Nvidia driver from here and I got an error saying Xorg drivers were already installed.

This needs some community wiki, as this isn't very localized, and someone else can and will have the same problem. – Yet Another User May 12 '13 at 1:03
How do I community wiki – WackyWalrus May 12 '13 at 1:11
When you're answering a question and you have enough reputation, you can check a box on the bottom right of the markdown entry box, to make it a community wiki. This doesn't apply to questions. – Yet Another User May 12 '13 at 1:13

Looks to me like a problem with your video drivers. You could try installing proprietary drivers (from Nvidia or ATI) using the Additional Drivers tool, to see if that clears up the issue.

You mentioned that you tried the 64 bit, 32 bit and Chromium, I assume they all do this but never Firefox. This would imply that it's something (a library, perhaps) that Chrome uses, but Firefox doesn't. You could also check to make sure that you've got everything up to date (Use the Update Manager or sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade in terminal.)

I think I'll try installing a proprietary driver. Thank you for the help! – WackyWalrus May 12 '13 at 0:46
I'd upvote you but that requires 15 reputation. – WackyWalrus May 12 '13 at 0:47
