I have Dell studio 15 laptop. I have installed a ubuntu 10.10. When ever I boot Ubuntu it comes up with a error message saying graphics card driver not found or not dedicated. But I have updated my graphics card and also wifi driver.I am not getting the advance graphics option and also I am not able to activate the feel and look of the desktop.

Please suggest me.

/me hates ubuntu 10.10 and upwards. /me uses 10.04 on each my laptop with a few fixes for sound card and appearance. although, /me uses 10.04 with great success. – shybovycha Jan 25 '11 at 14:04
Maybe this question should be posted in instead of superuser. – Wagner Maestrelli Jan 25 '11 at 14:50
Not a bad idea, but unfortunately there's no migration vote option for askubuntu yet. – bdonlan Jan 25 '11 at 14:51
what graphics card do you have? have you tried any other ubuntu release on it before? – madmaze Jan 28 '11 at 14:21
Agreed with 10.04 for laptops especially. I spent a day and a half trying to make the Vostro work gave me happy running 10.10 before giving up. The drivers / kernel situation is an absolute MESS. Upgrade things in the wrong order (which Apt very easily lets you do) and you have a command line brick. – peelman Jan 28 '11 at 22:22

If you haven't yet, try installing the closed driver via Menu -> System -> Administration -> Additional Drivers. It should give you a notice about the ATI FGLRX driver.

Assuming we are talking about an ATI card here. – oKtosiTe Jan 30 '11 at 9:39
