    Hi


    Try posting the output of you xorg log file. That may give clues as to what is happening.


    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    Kind regards

    Hi

    In your case, i suspect the easiest way may be to use pastbin.


    Open a terminal and type


    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pastebinit

    Then type


    Code:
    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit

    This will give you output similar i(but not the same) to this.


    Code:
    matthew@Aspire;$cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | pastebinit
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/123456

    Post the URL (which will look similar to this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/123456) back here.


    Kind regards

    Okay, i tried the
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pastebinit
    And i got this :
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Reading state information... Done
    You might want to run 'apt-get -f install- to correct these:
    Then it was some text in my language, but it said something about Fglrx and Python-configobj.

    So i couldn't install it.

    Hi

    Right then. I have had a better look at this thread.


    It seems you have a couple of packages that are still causing the problem to your package manager.


    fglrx is not installed correctly, therefore i suspect it is falling back to the vesa or frame buffer driver at 640x480. Hence your low resolution.


    This was an upgrade that seems to have gone wrong ?


    I find this interesting and needs to be examined.


    W: Not using locking for read only file /var/lib/dpkg/lock
    E: Unable to write to /var/cache/apt/
    e: tHe package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.


    Can you post the output of, from the terminal,


    Code:
    ls -l /var/lib/dpkg/lock /var/cache/apt/ /var/cache/

    That is a small L after ls.


    Copy and paste (hightlight text->right click->copy) the results back, from the terminal, into your next post.


    Kind regards

    Re: "Your system is running in low-graphics mode'' after Ubuntu 12.04 LTS update

    /SOLVED.

    It got anwsered on Askubuntu.com, and it worked, here is what i followed:

    Code:
    I had the same problem with an Acer Aspire 3810tg. I soved it by doing the following:
    
    Do a normal boot
    
    Press Ctrl-Alt-F1 on the "Your system is running in low-graphics mode" screen
    
    Download the correct driver from http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx, in my case (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330): wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run which should also cover your case (Mobility Radeon HD 4xxx Series)
    
    chmod 755 amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run to make the file executable
    
    sudo ./amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run and follow the standard steps
    
    You might need to run: sudo aticonfig --initial, but that was not necessary for me.
    
    In my case the driver installation finished with an error, but it still worked. I hope this helps.
