I have a Samsung SyncMaster 205BW monitor and an Nvidia GeForce 7300le graphics card. I formatted my hard drive, installed Windows 7 Ultimate, then installed Ubuntu 13.04. Windows had no issue, when I boot the computer, the grub screen is offset to the upper left-hand corner.

Whenever I click on the Unity search symbol my screen gets all glitchy showing several geometric visual artifacts, sometimes making it impossible to use. I went to System & Updates, and none of the additional drivers that are there from the list have worked. Do you have any advice?

Can you add a screenshot of the problem? Also edit your question and add the output of sudo lspci -nnk | grep -A10 VGA in a terminal. –  Braiam Sep 29 '13 at 3:06
