I am using ubuntu 11.04 on dell insprion 1545. But I am facing a problem that when I start laptop a message shows on the black screen that says

Ubuntu is running in low graphic mode. Your screen, graphic card and input device setting could not be detected correctly, you will need to configure these yourself

I have read that there is a file Xorg.conf that contain the graphics card information. I have also use the command

sudo cp /etc/x11/xorg.conf /etc/x11/xord.conf_backup

but its not working.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

xorg.conf(5) will be useful to you. Good luck -- getting the configuration just right can be pretty tedious. I'm glad I haven't needed to configure mine in a few years. – sarnold Jun 24 '11 at 8:36
Did X ever work on this machine? Did it break recently? – sarnold Jun 24 '11 at 8:36

Can you not just log out and choose "Ubuntu (classic)" from the login screen?
