ok, maybe i totally missing something or i dont have the privileges with my default login or something but: where is the list of system devices and modules? I can't tell what module i'm even running for my display... and i'd like to know what else is going on as well. i know this used to be present in 7.10 and in windows it is i believe under "system" in the cp and then "hardware profiles" or something like that. where where where?

May I recommend hardinfo package from the repositories. Once installed, look for the launcher under Applications->System Tools.

I am not sure. Perhaps they just changed the interface, I haven't seen it yet.
