Angry Graphics problem...

And a hello from me!

At the beggining I thought it was the FONTS, but no!,

Mandrake 9.0 under KDE and GNOME...

Eveything is fuzzy. All graphics doesn't show properly.

I have Compaq Presario 2811EA, it has an ATI 7500 graphics card and everything under linux is shown in stripes. I tried to find new drivers but no luck.

Mandrake by default installed my grphics card as ATI Radeon

Please Help me, I am new to Linux...
