Angry Ubuntu 8.10 Low graphics hell!


I just upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10 and now all I get is low Ati poo poo graphics mode.
Don't get me wrong but I thought that upgrades were to make things better and faster and at this point I'm just tired of looking at all post with no solutions.
Linux is new to me and the learning curve has been a challenge but this one has just stumped me and is total BS!
Please feel free to sent solution input possible.
Thank you for your support.

Did you enable any proprietary drivers for your video card?

This is on a N Series Fujitsu laptop Lifebook old school original P4 processor.
Ati Radeon 9600.
There are no proprietary drivers for video card that I could find anywhere.
Thank you.

Try going to System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers, and see if there is anything that you can enable.
