I bought a new PC, i5 cpu with built-in intel graphics.
I just plugged in my old harddisk from my old laptop with ubuntu 12.04 installed on it. I just plugged in the old harddisk and everything went well, except for the graphics, I guess. This is what is said in the Graphics section of the System Details:

When I try to run glxinfo, it gives me this error:
I tried purging all Nvidia drivers by:
name of display: :0.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig
which went well by the way, and re-installed xserver-xorg-video-intel, xserver-xorg-core, mesa-utils.
sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
But when I try to reconfigure xserver by:
nothing happens. it seems it's not being executed at all. I have tried executing it while "lightdm"is stopped, but still no result.
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
You have any idea why it's not working?

and it gives me this:
less /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "gl"
Any ideas how to go about this?
