Hi and Welcome !
Which Graphics Driver are you using right now?
Open Terminal/Konsole and execute this
cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep "Driver"
If you are using ati driver already, You have to remove the ATI Proprietary Linux Graphics Driver first.

Try "vesa" Driver.
sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Something like this
Section "Device" Identifier "xxxx Video Card" Busid "PCI:1:0:0" Driver "vesa" screen 0 EndSection

You can install Ati drivers in Synaptic (Package Manager) Just search for ati and there it is.
