Hey there.

I have had this problem before on an old Toshiba laptop... I think the problem you're having has something to do with the X11 setup. Try re-configuring the xorg server:

Code:
sudo dkpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
Hopefully this will fix your issue. If it doesn't, post some graphics card information with:

Code:
sudo lspci
It's possible that you need to install a graphics card driver, this will help us help you in that instance.

Good luck!

Please put some punctuation in your posts, as it's quite hard to read text that contains none at all.
