I am not the most experienced, however, the suggestion I have is something you 
probably have already tried, if not you can try it without negative affects and 
put it back if it doesn't help.


Open 'system settings>Advanced Tab> Composting type: and try an alternate 
choice to the one you are now using.  I have OpenGL, which works for me, 
however, I recall that XRender worked for me another time.  I am not sure, but 
it may depend on your video card.  In any event, I would make sure I have the 
proper drivers installed in my video card and try the composting solution, if 
you haven't already tried that.  It worked for me.
