    Is it the correct video card?

    Ubuntu 12.10 64bit Acer Aspire 8935G ATI 4670.
    Well the Video is a bit slow at times and the HDMI O/P don't work correctly or works for only a few seconds when closing down. I decided to investigate.

    1) Looking at System Settings / Details I get:

    Processor: Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset
    Experiance: Standard

    With no mention of ATI..

    2) Running lspci|grep VGA gives me:
    Aspire-8935G:~$ lspci|grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV730 XT [Mobility Radeon HD 4670]
    Are things as they should be or am I running the chipset video instead of the ATI? How should I change it if need be.

    Wishing everyone a happy new year.

    That site gives me a load of advertising rubbish. I use Linux to get away from all the sh.. that came with Uncle Bills products.
    There must be a better way.
