    Radeon X1200 graphics trouble

    Please Help me with my new graphics driver someone.

    I have tryed pretty much everything and im becomming tired of not being able to use my laptop fully.

    My graphics card is ATI Radeon X1200

    Very few games work in my PC. When i try to start then i only see a black screen flash quickly and nothing happens.

    I have installed the driver from ATI's homepage. But i am not sure if it works or how to make it work.

    I have tryed to see if i have activated Direct rendering:
    glxinfo | grep rendering
    And the output is this.
    No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)

    First and Foremost HI

    2nd. Are you logged in as Admin or as a superuser?

    3 Did you just try going to System>Administration>Hardware drivers and see if a driver was already active?

    4 What kind of laptop are we looking at here? Dell, Acer, HP....

    Let us know that so that way we can know what way we should take you.

    Don't do that. Your card isn't supported and it will only screw up the system. To fix:
