I would like to find out the chipset on my Lenovo notebook with intel chipset. GM45, GL40, PM965 etc?

http://www.intel.com/products/laptop/chipsets/index.htm?iid=chipsets_body+nb_all

a) lspci -v just provides this ...
Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)
Subsystem: Lenovo Device 3a00

b) using the intel chipset identification utility opens with wine win98 but is not up to date. using win xp, there is a wine issue requiring admin rights ...

c) tried wiping my whole ubuntu install & installing Win XP but it didn't like my Ext 4 partition and would not install.

d) tried the pci id list and it just says mobile 4 express etc etc

Try running this instead:

lspci | grep VGA

I can't remember now, but I was wondering the same thing about my chipset and I read something about using a terminal to enter


lspci | grep Network,

which told me that my chipset is a Ralink RT3090 802.11n.

Wojox's advice about "less" gives A LOT of information (well it did for me) and I found it helpful pressing the "h" button which brings up A LOT more information about commands and whatnot.

I saw someting about intel chipset, which is what I found when I did a search for my particular brand of computer, but it was only when I used the "grep Network" command that I saw something about my chipset being "Ralink".

I dunno why that is, though, and I don't know what "less" is, either, but golly gosh there sure is a lot to learn!

you could install sysinfo also.

sudo apt-get install sysinfo

after install it will be accessible from applications>system tools

This did the trick for me :).

sudo lspci -v

This just saved my day!

Work user was unable to boot to Windows and was stuck at the usual blinking cursor...

So, I popped in my Ubuntu 12.04 USB, "sudo lspci -v" and hey-presto "Intel 82801IBM/IEM - Intel ICH9M/ICH9M-E"... booted the XP CD "F6" for USB/Mass storage drivers and instantly could see the correct iaStor to load!

It turned out that when XP setup loaded I was shown an all too familiar first partition of "100MB"... the user didn't know what Windows was running and thank god I found this first! It was Windows 7!

Cut a long story short... the Gods and Goddesses of UbuntuForums.org have come to the rescue once again!

Thank you!
