How cab I detect my Graphic Card works proper ?
It's 2 year I've started using ubuntu. In ubutnu 10.04 until ubuntu 11.10 anything was Ok with my Graphic card, But when I migrate to ubuntu 12.04 I had a corruption in my graphic card and I paid expert to repair it. It was Ok with ubuntu 12.04 in continuous but when I upgraded to ubuntu 12.10 I'm never able to install my nvidia. My graphic card is Geforce 8400, and the driver I install is Nvidia 173. I decided to back ubuntu 12.04 and this time I have same trouble there too. So what's your advice ? How can I use my Graphic Card properly ?

Just search for word drivers in the unity shell.
This will give u option called additional drivers.
This will check if u need extra graphics driver or not.
If needed, u can click activate it to use it.
Other option is:
Go to synaptic or software center. Search for NVidia.
If you r sure that u have NVidia card, then u can install it and it will load from next reboot automatically.
