    Question video card not compatible plz hlp

    Hello I am fairly new to ubuntu and i am having major issues with my video card compatibility:

    i am running:
    -inspiron 5160
    -xgi volari-xp5 32 mb video card
    -ubuntu 10

    i cant change the display settings at all and my display is marked as "unknown"

    i have tried following threads witch have led me to a bunch of xorg -config suggestions but that hasnt helped. i tried to find a driver manually but the only thing i was able to find is a file called "sis.4" but im not sure how to install it.

    if someone knows what i need to do or can at least point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    Did you go into the system settings into jockey and install the driver that way? also is the card Nvidea based or AMD based?

    See if this link to a solution from Ubuntu Geek helps. It's a little old, but should still be applicable!
