Did you change the theme with the Appearance manager?

If you changed it, try to change it back to the standard theme.

If it really has to do with your GPU, I'd install "Additional Drivers".

Unity isn't stable yet, so that could also be a bug, if nothing of these suggestions worked, please create a bug report:

I hope this helped you, Daniel
