I can now confidently say it is the video driver you're using. I'm using the open-source ATI, and the title screen is reduced to animated shapes. The colors are also reduced to almost nothing.
First thing is knowing whether you have ATI/AMD, Nvidia, or Intel graphics chipset->[ lspci | grep 'VGA' ]
Second, download the binary/proprietary drivers for your respective card.
Third (often the hard part), *correctly* installing the driver after removing the current one. I know the AMD binary can generate a package that Ubuntu/RedHat/OpenSuSe package managers can understand. First step once the binary is downloaded is to change permissions to make it executable->[ chmod +x file.name ]
