    Nvidia Vanta

    My computer keeps saying error this system is running in a low-graphics mode. I have tried to update and reinstall the nvidia drivers but everytime I do then nothing will appear and I have to boot into graphic safe mode to delete the driver

    Whoa, that's an old card. I don't know this one, sorry. Moving to Hardware to see if anyone there is able to help.

    By the way, you should begin with a fresh install of Lubuntu 13.04 as 10.04 is out of support.

    Do you think install Lubuntu would solve the issue or no?

    Regardless of the card problem it's time to leave 10.04 and switch to something supported, preferably a light distro.

    Your card is from around 2000 and it wasn't even considered powerful when it was new. I think you should be happy for just getting some kind of picture out of it. Demanding a high resolution is not realistic.

    I know its old, but I just want to play around with it. And I'm not demanding high res I just don't want that message to pop up every time

    Nvidia dropped support for that card years ago. If you want it to work you'll need to install legacy drivers. I think you need a 71 version nvidia-glx-legacy or something similar.

    The newest Nvidia drivers do not support that card.
