Drivers for Ubuntu on old Compaq nx9010


I am running Ubuntu 11.10 on an old Compaq nx9010 and need drivers for the ATI Radeon IGP 345M video chip. Where can I find them?

Regards,
Newbie Bernie.

This might help. The heading to the article refers to that chipset specifically:

You can try ati.com but they have quit supporting older chips. You will probably have to compile from source IF you can find the correct package.

Ubuntu comes with open source radeon driver for that GPU by default. There is no other driver to install. What makes you think you need other drivers?
