Messages can be indirect and misleading. 
Nonetheless, I noticed that it mentions input, not output.

The CPU likely does not matter. 
Your graphics card is for output (not input as mentioned in message). 
It might or might not be relevant.

_If_ the problem is related to input as the message suggested, 
then I would not expect tweaking an output device to matter. 

At one's login screen, Try selecting Unity 2D instead of Unity (3D). 

Also consider playing with different live media versions of *buntu,
