Why does my desktop look garbled text on top left, Pidgin looks like it's been swiped with a dirty towel.

This happened after I updated to the new kernel. I tried logging out and in many times. (tried this before, and it worked) Restarted a few times, no improvement.

I'm using Xorg drivers on my HD6870, if that helps.

I can work around it, but really gets me angry. I have to leave in a little bit, so I'll be back in about 5 hours. Any help is appreciated.

Funnily enough i updated to a new kernel the other day and my screen is now only using 3/4 of what it should be

I have not looked more into it yet i just went back to previous kernel

My computer goes past grub. There a key to press to get into it, where I can go back to the previous kernel?

I was playing with Ubuntu the other day and learned that holding Shift during boot brings up the boot options screen (kinda safe mode thing)

Actually I think it was Linuxmint, but same difference

The new Xorg updates must be bad. Either roll your updates back or wait till they bring in the new ones, which shouldn't be long.
