alright so ive searched the forums, and i cant seem to find something that pretains to my quetion.

i installed ubuntu 8.04 and because im using an intel graphics card i guess, it installed in safe graphics mode. which sucks. i downloaded something off linux threw my updates, it said something about intel driver support? please can anyone help me get out of graphics safe mode.......my display is also at 800x600

i have a Vaio sr if it helps at all

In the past I've had to tell xorg (the display server) that I want it to use a particular driver. To do that, I've edited the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and put one of the following lines inside the 'Device' section:

Driver "i810"

Driver "intel"
Let us know how you get on with that?
