    Old hardware support on linux

    I need a linux distro, or (ubuntu version) that supports old hardware and graphics card. (specially NVIDIA Corporation G72M [GeForce Go 7400]). Please help me. I am currently running ubuntu 12.04. and there are no animations or visual effects. i can't use standby or sleep mode and hibernation does not work.

    Please help me fix my problem. Thanks....

    Geforce Go 7400 series is supported by 304.88 nvidia drivers. Dunno if that is the latest but you might have to look at nvidia legacy drivers.
