I am having issues with Xubuntu 13.10 installed on an old AMD Sempron machine with 2 GB RAM. The top and bottom panels are not shown clearly and becomes very hard to read them. Even text in a terminal window are not shown clearly. I have screenshots, but dont know how to attach them to this post.

Also, the maximum resolution supported is only 1024*768. Please help me with any pointers.
