I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 alongside with Windows Vista on my old laptop. The installation took some time, but after a hour or so it was done. Everything worked nicely, and i was going to log in to my user and test out Ubuntu. The log in was fine, but after a while the screen froze. I restartet the pc, and after a while it froze again. The third time the screen got really bugged, and weird kind of "pixel glitches" started occuring, as you can see on these pictures:

It really bugs me, 'cause i really wanna start using Ubuntu, but i can't when this happens :(

Anyone here that can help me? I would really appreciate it ;)

Kind regards, Mathias
