I have recently installed ubuntu 13.04 in my laptop HP ProBook 4540s. After installing Ubnutu 13.04, I got problem while installing AMD Radeon graphics driver where my graphics is HD 7650M and intel HD graphics 4000. It says, it has very low graphcs and I can't do any thing after that. I have re-installed Ubuntu 13.04. Please help me to install graphics driver.

Hello and welcome to the Forums!

Unfortunately, you have a system for which the manufacturers of laptops have not provided good support for Linux. There's not much the Linux community can do but try to find work-arounds. Unfortunately, this is a tough one.

What you have there is an Intel/ATI hybrid graphics system. I would suggest that you read through this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1930450) to see what you are up against. If you are lucky, you may find someone who has found a solution for a system exactly like yours.

We'll have to wait and see if the manufacturers will step forward with good Linux support in the future.

Best wishes!
