I'm new with Ubuntu and downloaded the latest version about a week ago. I have issues with my launcher, dash, and unity not showing, but I can cope since I can figure things out from the terminal. My problem is this: ....well it seems that I can't post an image since I don't have enough rep.

I went to play my crack games on Facebook and when the game started to load it only filled half the screen, the other half was black but what was showing up was out of contrast and I couldn't click on anything. This happens with YouTube as well. My graphics card is the standard that came with my Dell Dimension2400; Intel 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE chipset Intergrated Graphics Device. Do I need to install some other kind of drivers? Like I said, I can get over the no launcher, dash, and unity thing (been to the link, nothing works), but I want my graphics for things like games. Please help, I really don't want to go back to windows.
