I've Debian Squeeze installed on my desktop, how do I know if my video card (its driver) is properly installed?

This is part of the lspci command output:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82Q963/Q965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

and this is part of lshw command output:

             description: VGA compatible controller

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Run sudo lsmod and review the output. You will probably be using the i915 driver.

The output does contain video-14605-1-i915, it means that the driver is properly installed and in use? – JohnTortugo Jun 14 '12 at 22:42
If you can see on the monitor, I would say yes. Are you getting the resolution options you desire? If so, then definitely, yes. – Chris K Jun 14 '12 at 22:58
