Now for your Other Option:
Went there and it said "No Proprietary Drive are in use on this system"
I am also sure I have an ATI Graphics Card.
So your motherboard has an integrated SiS graphics, and you also have an ati video card installed? Is that correct?
Can you run these 2 commands:
and post the entire output of both commands here please. The lshw
command is for 'list hardware'.
The output of lspci | grep -i vga
obviously does not list your ati card. It only shows the SiS graphics. This is a bit unusual. What ati card and motherboard do you have? If you did not build the computer yourself, then what brand and model number computer is it? And what ati card is in it?
Some basic troubleshooting:
1. Is the ati card selected properly in the computer's BIOS? Some motherboards require you to select which video card to use when you have a choice between integrated and AGP or PCI-E graphics devices.
2. If the ati video card requires an extra power plug from the computer's power supply, is that connected?
3. I would assume that the ati card was working properly in Windows with the proprietary ati drivers. Is that correct?
If you do have an ati card in you computer, I am not sure why Ubuntu is not seeing it. Please double check that the ati card is properly seen and configured in the BIOS. And post the output of lspci
and sudo lshw
