Gateway 7326GZ Graphics problem after installing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS


Hello,
I have run Ubuntu for years on this laptop. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 and it will only boot in low graphics mode. Gateway laptop 7326GZ.
I'm not the greatest with Linux so you'll have to walk me through any troubleshooting steps. Thanks in advance.

Here is the Xorg.conf file

Did you perform an upgrade or a fresh install onto a blank partition? I ask because a fresh installation should not have an xorg.conf file. The display is being dynamically configured during system startup.

Try renaming your xorg.conf file and restart the computer.

Renamed xorg.conf file still no joy

Hello,
This was an upgrade install. I renamed the xorg.conf file and it still will not boot in full graphic mode.

Thanks for the help.

I searched Ubuntu forums for the graphics device listed in your xorg.conf file: 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device

Here are a couple of links that may help.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...raphics+Device

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1661395

If those don't help you could put the name of your graphics chip into the ubuntu forums search page.

I'm glad you found the information that you need. Now the question is whether it is time for you to change distributions.
