How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?

While running Ubuntu 12.04 amd64 from USB in safe mode it shows an error that says the system system running in low graphics mode. When I click to reconfigure low graphics mode it prompts:


It asks for some command. What should I do? I am a complete beginner on the Linux platform. Should I install it without fixing the graphics, or should I solve the graphics problem before installing?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

You can easily solve this problem after your installation. If you are connected to the internet when you perform your install you will get all updated packages.

Once you boot into Ubuntu you can go to system settings and then click additional drivers this works most of the time with video cards.

If you post your video card model we can look and see if it will work with Ubuntu.
