I have Lucid installed on a Dell Inspirion 2200 laptop and every thing was working fine on the install and then I ran the updates and a couple would not install and when I rebooted I get a message that I'm in Low Graphics Mode. Now I think the solution to this problem would be to manually configure the xorg.conf but I have no idea how to do it, or if it is even right!

I am willing to try anything at this point. Please help :) thank you

This seems like an awesome guide! Thank you very much, but hen I enter the first command my screen goes totally blank. I don't know what is wrong...

I ran the updates and a couple would not install Which ones would not install? Do you actually have an xorg.conf, already?

I don't know which ones didn't install... and my computer isn't recognizing the hard drive any more so the best I could do would be to run ubuntu from a livecd but that wouldn't help anything... And I have no idea if I have set one up already or not...
