    Question Graphics Driver Unknown!

    In the " About This Computer Section "
    About computer graphics its saying
    " Driver Unknown "
    " Experience Standard "

    Is that mean that my computer cant find graphics card?
    I have Around 1400MB on board AGP.

    You can select "Additional Drivers" in the Dash, and install a driver if it suggests it.

    Hi!,
    If using 12.10, Right-Click on the Desktop>'Change desktop Background'>'All Settings>System>Software Sources>Additional Drivers Tab.

    Before 12.10, Open System Settings,select Additional Drivers.

    Chao!, bogan.

    Just like previous versios the propietary driver uses its own setting and will appear as unknown in details.

    As Frogs Hair indicated, even with proprietary drivers, the driver will appear as unknown and the experience standard. This is normal.

    Hello!

    Which version of Ubuntu are you using and what is the OEM/Model of the card?

    Thanks.
