    Question The system is running in low graphics

    "Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself."

    I have updated my my laptop ( Lenovo Ideapad Z560) from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 12.04. I am using both Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop now.
    My laptop uses: Intel HD Graphics in processor,external analog monitor support via VGA DB-15 connector and digital monitor supportvia HDMI, HDCP-compliant

    I am unable to use any of the 4 options following the prompt given above.

    Options:
    1. Run in low-graphics mode for just one session.
    2. Reconfigure graphics.
    3. Troubleshoot the error.
    4. Exit to console login.
    Results:
    1. Gives no change and loops back.
    2. No options able to be changed.
    3. Troubleshooting gives no new solutions in any manner so far.
    4. Sends me back to login.

    Using Ctrl+Alt+F1, I used
    sudo apt-get update (upgrade)
    sudo apt-get install -f
    sudo apt-get --configure -a

    Had 40 Updates and 288 Upgrades but not solutions for my error.

    I am willing to put hours of work into my laptop to get it moving again but I need the support that I know I can get from here. Thanks!

    Have you looked in the additional drivers app?

    Post the actual card.
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA

    I fixed the issue by simply reinstalling Ubuntu to my hard-drive not syncing it with Windows 7 and using Ubuntu 12.04 solely. I will be searching for coding sources though as well for further users.

    I don't think there is a solution yet, I couldn't find one. This may be of interest to you;

    http://blogs.operationaldynamics.com...untu-12-04-lts

    After removing unity as described there ( Scroll down), my graphics worked. So now I use "GNOME Classic".

    I have no idea whether this will help you, but it can't hurt to try.
    There is always a way, but it might not be the best way, or your way!

    Re: The system is running in low graphics

    I am running Ubuntu 12.04 (alongside WinXP). I installed version 8 a few years back, and have been upgrading ever since. 2 days back, 12.04 was running fine. Then it told me to please reboot so updates could be applied. On reboot, I get the message "your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure them yourself." At this point, the Keyboard and Mouse are not functional, so I cannot click anything or configure anything. PLEASE HELP!

    During Boot, when Grub comes up, the keyboard works just fine, letting choose which Kernel version I want or to boot Windows. Can I boot to a Linux CD and run some kind of Uninstall script on the last set of Updates?

    My system has an Intel Quad Core Duo prog, 4 gigs of DDR2 and a Geforce 8400 vid card, if that matters.

    please help. fymox@yahoo.com

    Unless you have the same hardware, please make a new thread instead of bumping this old one. Also, I would suggest giving more info in the new thread, such as your Xorg log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log).

    I am a newbie as you can see.
    And my problem is exactly what the OP describes.
    Still making a new thread hoping we will reach to the solution.
