    And seeing the terror on the faces of the people, QIII did speak to them, saying "Fear not the Terminal, for it is a road both swift and secure to the Great Mysteries of Linux without passing through the dangers of The Land of Ten Thousand Competing Desktop Environments."

    Find Additional Drivers and open that up. It should tell you what video driver youre using. My guess is that the driver is the root of your problem.

    This means that there are no proprietary drivers installed. Most commonly those are drivers provided by ATI or NVIDIA.
    As you have GeForce GT 555M you should have seen some NVIDIA driver pop up in Jockey (aka. Additional Drivers)

    Do you see any drivers in here? If so, click the driver and press "activate".
    I suggest activating the latest drivers which you will be able to choose from.


    This is the best way to install drivers for people that aren't used to Linux and don't want to change something so they don't know what to do about it except reinstall. I install beta NVIDIA drivers from their website, which I recommend only if you want to read on how to do it (very unintuitive), consider risk screwing something up as not a problem, and want to learn how to do this.

    Re: Problems with steam [64 bit]

    It means that you are using the open source drivers. In the Additional Drivers window, are there other drivers listed? I would try nvidia-current
