    Hello!

    Your machine uses Intel/ATI hybrid graphics.

    Unfortunately, the equipment manufacturers have not provided good support to Linux for these systems. Since yours is an Intel/ATI hybrid, your best bet is probably vga_switcheroo, which will allow you to switch between your Intel GPU and your ATI GPU. However, you will not be able to use the ATI proprietary driver and will need to stay with the default open source Radeon driver.

    For more information, please see this wiki page.

    If you have any questions, be sure to ask!

    Best wishes!

    Unfortunately, no version of Linux is any better than another simply because the manufacturers have not provided Linux support for this sort of arrangement.

    Since you currently have Ubuntu installed and vga_switcheroo is available, you might be best served to use it and ask this community for help. You're already here and we aren't going anywhere!
