the way my laptop runs now feel like the vid drivers arnt right. feels like its sluggish. i went to this website. but im a realy noob to linux. http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/download.html
i have no clue what they want me to do to update my drivers. the reason i feel like its my vidcard drivers is ive done a lot of windows builds from scratch hardware for myself and family. so i know what no vid drivers feels like. i think what they tell me to type in the term is not correct is get some bash error. any help would be awesome.
