    ubuntu 10.04 (64) compiz not working

    Hello Friends,
    i decided to install ubuntu 10.04 (64) bit instead of (32) that limit my memory size. what i notice that compiz is not working at all, and i got this error:
    Desktop effects could not be enabled
    and each time i try to select normal compiz effect it try to search for driver while the same driver
    working fine on (32bit) on the same laptop.

    could any one help me resolve this problem, my laptop is lenovo T420.

    when i run compiz test i got:

    Gathering information about your system...

    Distribution: Ubuntu 10.04
    Desktop environment: GNOME
    Graphics chip: Intel Corporation Device 0116 (rev 09)
    Driver in use: vesa
    Rendering method: AIGLX

    Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP]

    Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP]

    At least one check had to be skipped:
    Error: vesa driver in use
    Update: this seem driver issu and not compiz, thus i need to get proper driver.
