Bug Description

I had Ubuntu 9.04 and everything was allright except that youtube and other online TV didn't work.
I decided to install the automatical update to ubuntu 9.10 karmic koala. After that, when I restarted my computer it appeared on the screen "ubuntu running in low graphics mode". There're few options but no one fix the problem. Each time I open the computer I have to select "open in low mode just for one session".
I've been searching on internet but it was impossible to fix the problem.
