How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?
I am new to Ubuntu so please go easy! I managed to installed Ubuntu 12.04 alongside Vista after a little bit of work, as I kept getting a black screen with compiz crashing and the keyboard not working. Unfortunately after a fair amount of reading up on the problem I still couldn't understand what to do, and ended up getting lucky with a third install that got the pc working.
Now another new problem. After installing Chrome and going into the software centre, the window stayed a solid white. After restarting the computer an error message came up saying:
"Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. Your screen, graphics card, and input devices could not be detected correctly. You will have to configure these yourself."
There is no interface and I'm a little stuck. I am guessing it would be wise to update the video card drivers, although I haven't been able to test to see if the terminal will open (ctrl-alt-T?). Is that what I should try or is there maybe another cause of the problem?
Any help is very much appreciated!
