Display driver not working right on Latitude D800 Lubuntu


Guys I've did a fresh install of lubuntu 12.04 and well the display isn't right.I have the Gforce 4200 card on board. the mouse pointer is distorted and all.I even tried installing the "Nouveau driver" but even that didn't solved my problem. So now I'm stuck with this crappy display.

Well after much banging head on the wall. I rolled back to 11.10 and every thing is working normal so I guess this may be the fix. Till Nvidia releases compatible drivers for Xorg 1.11
