Re: drivers ati mobility radeon hd 5165
OK ... first of all, if Ubuntu did NOT recognize your graphics chipset you would have a black, blank screen -- which is clearly NOT the case as you would have said that. Ubuntu installed the default Radeon driver for you -- which is why you see a desktop.

Third, there are often two additional driver options, the first of these typically works, the second (often called post-update) usually does NOT work. Which of these are you trying to use?
Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17; MS Win 8.1.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
