    unclaimed display controller 82852/855 GM Integrated Graphics Device

    I need help! I'm new to ubuntu(linux) but I really wanna use the OS. I wiped my laptop and installed it but I can't change my screen resolution (it's stuck at 1024 X 768 and my refresh rate is at 0 HZ) I tried installing a driver that was for both the i9xx and i8xx chipset family but it doesn't look like it helped anything. I want to be able to play World of Warcraft Wrath of The Lich King but when I try it the way the computer is now the the frame rate is really really slow. I also need to fix my audio because there's crackling that comes from the speakers often.
    I attached a screen shot of what I get when I enter the command: sudo lshw -c video
    Changing the resolution isn't the problem so much as the fact that I can't change the refresh rate from "0 HZ" to anything higher so that my game will play smoothly. I would also like to put compiz fushion on my laptop as well but I don't believe it will work unless I resolve this problem. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

    Re: unclaimed display controller 82852/855 GM Integrated Graphics Device

    Can anyone help me out with my unclaimed drivers!? Please! I've tried using a source file of the driver I need for linux but after extracting the folder from the tar ball and I 'cd' into the folder and I try to use the command 'sudo ./configure' it doesn't work and says "command not found" and I see that there is no configure file in the folder,however there is a 'configure.ac' file but when I try the 'autoconf' command I get an error saying I need to install xorg-macros 1.8 or later but i'm sure I have it installed..i'm lost on what to do and I have several devices that are unclaimed when I run the command 'sudo lshw'. I need help, please!!

    From what I understand the unclaimed device is not your problem..I think this message is referring to a 2nd unused wired port.
    My netbook (945GME) has the same result to lspci etc..

    The lspci output shows the i915 driver is being used...(correct).

    Compiling the intel driver is not a trivial undertaking & I would avoid it like the plague.
    I would try the xorg-edgers ppa for the latest intel driver & Xorg.

    I'm sure I already have the most recent intel driver but if display 1 is referring to the external monitor port on my laptop then why is it that I cannot change the resolution or the refresh rate? It seems like I should have a refresh rate higher than 0 HZ.

    The 0 Hz can not be real but some incorrect reporting.
    Why do you get this info from ?

    You could post (as attachments) your
    /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    outputs from:
    xdpyinfo | head
    glxinfo | grep glx
    xrandr -q

    I got the resolution and refresh rate info from the "Monitors" program under the tabs "System>Prefrences>Monitors" and I should be able to change my resolution and refresh rate there but I can't. I attached the files you were asking for.

    Re: unclaimed display controller 82852/855 GM Integrated Graphics Device

    Looks to me that you are running the vesa driver & not the intel (i915). That explains why you are stuck at 1024x768.

    You could edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with a device section with Driver "intel".
    If the file does not exist then run Xorg -configure & then edit the file

    xorg-edgers ppa versions Xorg.
    X.Org version: 1.10.2.902

    Re: unclaimed display controller 82852/855 GM Integrated Graphics Device

    I uninstalled the Xorg Vesa driver from the software center. I don't have an xorg.conf file and it fails to make one when I try to. I press ctrl + alt + f1 to get the the black screen and login as root then I use the command 'stop gdm' before I can run the command 'Xorg -configure' but 'Xorg -configure' gives me "configuration failed" when the command is all done running. Other than a couple of modules failing to load it says "number of created screens does not match number of detected devices" and in the end it makes an xorg.conf.new file in the root directory. can I use this file or do I need to figure out why 'Xorg -configure' failed and get the command to run without failing?

    You are logging in as user on a console terminal.

    You should have used
    [sudo] service gdm stop
    [sudo] Xorg -configure

    could then
    [sudo] modprobe i915
    [sudo] service gdm start

    I will try that, thanks. The process I used before was compiled from reading several different things online.
