If it is a gnome problem (assuming that the default installation installs gnome) or one of it's (useless) components, install something simpler like openbox, log in there and see if the same thing happens. If it does, it may be some xorg issue, like improper driver or missing firmware. If it does not do the same, blame gnome or nautilus or whatever starts with it.
