    System>Administration>Hardware drivers

    it will list a restricted driver.
    failing that you can use "envy" installer for nvidia or ati

    if your graphics are not ati or nvidia then

    Applications>accessories>terminal
    type in this code and post output

    Code:
    lspci -v

    915 resolution is now superseeded by xserver-xorg-video-intel

    Code:
    sudo apt-get  install xserver-xorg-video-intel
    and reboot

    if it's already installed then good, if not let it install.

    I'll look for a howto if you still have issues
