I recently nuked my Windows 8, good riddance. But now that I've got Ubuntu 13.04 up and running, it appears to be using the integrated graphics on the processor, instead of my NVidia 610M. When I go to System Settings->Details, it shows "Intel® Ivybridge Mobile".
One of my friends said that EFI can prevent Ubuntu from using the graphics card properly, so I should mention that it was actually very difficult to get Ubuntu installed because the only way to access the EFI was through Windows, and I had to re-burn the bootable flashdrive with a different piece of software specifically designed to create EFI-compatible bootable devices.
Also, lspci does detect the graphics card, so on the most basic level, Linux sees the card, but Ubuntu doesn't seem to be using it.
Is there any way to get my graphics card working? If more information is needed, please advise.
