Thanks Cary but please know that I am new to Kubuntu and need step by step
help.  I am learning but the only experience I have ever had was with
windows 95 and beyond.  I don't really understand DOS.  So please have
patience with me.

I am using a Asus M2N-E motherboard-----AMD Athlon 64X2 duel core 3800+

Does that help at all?

Per chance are you using a Intel graphics chipset? if you are try this
as it worked for me. sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
        Option          "AccelMethod" "uxa"
