Ubuntu Graphics Problem

Hello everyone. I am in desperate need of help, my screen keeps displaying random colours and failing after a several minutes of logging on, but the system does not crash at all. Also, I enjoy computer games very much and when I run games,the graphics in the games starts failing. I think this is to do with the graphics driver that ubuntu has when was installed not being compatable with my graphics card, I couldn't find a graphics driver for my graphics card that works on ubuntu. My computer is a Toshiba Satellite L300D. A lot of people on the internet say that toshiba laptops are not compatable with linux, it might be something to do with that as well. My graphics card is either a ATI Radeon X1250 or a ATI Radeon X1200.

In around 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Server Edition, you can have a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.The LAMP option means you don’t have to install and integrate each of
the four separate LAMP components, a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual

ownership.Currently this installation provide PostgreSQL database, Mail Server, Open SSH Server,Samba File Server, Print Server, Tomcat Java Server,Virtual
Machine Host,Manual Package selection,LAMP and DNS options for pre-configured installations, easing the deployment of common server configurations.
