Future reference--to find your video card type (manufacturer & model):
Code:lspci | grep VGA
My desktop is running at 1024x768 thanks anyway to verify the driver is installed?

Did you enable the restricted drivers?
System > Administration > Hardware drivers
Went there nothing is showing up it says
"NO PROPRIETARY DRIVERS ARE IN USE IN THIS SYSTEM"
Have you tryed using envy?
tried that but my card is not found if i do a manual install it forces ubuntu into low graphics mode
Try this... First find out what graphics card you have like ati fx1131B for example and from what I can remember in "low graphics mode" you'll be able to select your graphics card.
lspci | grep VGA
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350M
going to try that now
