    Hardy Heron Graphics Slowdown

    I just upgraded to 8.04, and I'm experiencing a graphics slowdown. I currently have the visual effects set to normal (under System --> Appearance), but I also experience a slowdown with visual effects set to "none". Most notably, a choppy transition when scrolling down a web page.

    This was not a problem with 7.10. Is there some type of graphics driver I'm missing, or am I SOL until some future update?

    What video card do you have?

    In my case I have an nVidia 6100 and when I installed 8.04 it offered to use restricted drivers and using them improves the graphics a lot.

    I'm not really sure how to check what video card my laptop is equipped with. As far as the proprietary drivers, ubuntu only offered ones for the software modem and wireless card, both of which work fine.

    Hi and you can use the command
    Code:
    lspci
    in the terminal. Look for VGA

    Much thanks! Here's what I get:
    Code:
    01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RS300M AGP [Radeon Mobility 9100IGP]
    So is my best bet to google search for drivers for this?
