    System running in low res

    Im having the problem of 'your screen, graphics card and input devices could.......
    I dont recall up dating.
    My system grub:
    ubuntu 12.04 LTS, kernal 3.2.0-25-generic.....

    I haved looked at a few threads and did the following
    sudo apt-get install fglrx
    but that didnt fix anything (obvious)

    When I run from live cd, the screen works fine
    lspci | grep VGA returns
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel corporation 82945G/GZ intigrated graphics controller (rev 02)

    I have looked in etc/X11 but there is no xorg.conf, but there are lots of xorg.conf.dist-upgrade.... files

    any help, or direct me to a thread that will help
    thanks

    Hey,

    What video card do you have? I am seeing something strange in this line:
    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel corporation 82945G/GZ intigrated graphics controller (rev 02)
    It suggests that it is only seeing the integrated graphics chip and doesn't see your video card.
