Hi all,

I have a problem with my graphic card in ubuntu 8.10. I tried to install compiz and messed a little bit with the drivers. Although compiz worked fine, after a restart my notebook loads only in safe mode. When i check the display settings, my ubuntu does not recognise any monitor or any video card.

First, how do i check which video driver i currently have?

Second, how do i change the driver to use the one ubuntu used in the begining even if that means i wont have compiz working (at this point i dont care)

Thanks in advance

Just be prepared to reinstall your OS, if all else fails
