That looks like the same laptop my wife uses. She's running Linux Mint 
Gnome without problems (with Compiz enabled), I have only briefly tried 
KDE on it. If you got time you could perhaps try installing Compiz just 
to see if the problem persists using "apt-get install --no 
install-recommends" (to avoid installing unwanted dependencies)
