Grafic Card

Dear community

just today I changed from windows to linux mint and my graphic driver kind of crashed, so I found out, that I had to go to the bootmenu and exchange quiet splash with nomodeset. Then I was told to reinstall the graphic driver. I have an Intel GM965/GL960. I googled for quite a while now, without any results. Please help me and please keep your english easy, I'm from Germany

Thanx! -G

My process for eliminating hardware errors in linux is to use a "live" distribution and see what that chooses to use for any given piece of hardware. The reason I do this is because live distributions use a very broad hardware configuration set and even for obscure hardware that you don't see everyday. That said most of the time I figure out the problem using this method. Knoppix works well for this or even Puppy linux.

my 2 cents
