What video card do you have ? What drivers does it use ? Post the output of '/sbin/lspci -k'.

Does it happen on other distros or Windoze ?

Using Dell Latitude D630.

The only OS is Linux Mint 15. Not quite sure what type of video card or drivers.

$ xvidtune -show
$ grep -i "driver" /var/log/Xorg.0.log
$ lspci -nn

The google results seem to suggest that you have one or both of two possible cards for video.

NVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M
Intel GMA X3100

And dell lists it as unavailable with recommendation for other comparable system.
