So, I recently installed the 'ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver' from 'System Settings -> Additional Drivers' because I was having a problem which made HD videos appear choppy when I tried to watch them.

This seems to have fixed my problem, however, I now have a small box in the bottom right corner of my screen saying "AMD unsupported hardware".

Anybody know why I'm getting this problem, and how to fix it?

Would help to know some details -- like what hardware you have.

Open a terminal, enter "lspci" (without the quotes), look for the line containing "VGA" -- and post the results back here.

Just so you know, that indicates that you have an AMD Radeon HD 6320 video chip.
