Please help me, I've tried everything, but I cannot fix it.
I did something once, and the low graphics mode didn't appear, but when I tried glxgears, it didn't work so I know somethings wrong.

Oh, I also did an upgrade to hardy.

Thanks. :D

in the future, you might want to consider doing a fresh install instead of upgrading. in the meantime, try
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg then restart x by ctrl-alt-bksp.

that's what it's supposed to do. after you run the code i gave you, do ctrl-alt-bksp.

I have the same problem as him, the terminal command didn't work for me, last thing I did in ubuntu was
shutdown 1
in the terminal,
then when I booted up the next day it was in low graphics mode I don't know what to do I've tried editing xorg.conf with my screens refresh rates but to no avail:confused:

Thanks for the reply, I did that and it worked, but I have no video drivers. I have a nvidia geforce 6600, I went to hardware drivers, but it "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system"

Thanks for you reply, but I already figured it out. I uninstalled every video driver I had, and then installed the one from nvidia.com, works way better then the regular ubuntu default, I went from 2700 fps in glxgears to 5000 fps :D
