Is it error at driver of graphic chip or Xorg or kernel?

I am Asus T91mt with GMA500, Ubuntu 12.04.1.

I would like too see only a notice of connection at least.

A log of xrandr:

$ lspci | grep VGA

You cannot "make" xrandr work with a specific video card; either the driver supports xrandr, or it does not. Adding xrandr support means modifying the driver.

Therefore should i replace native psd_gfx driver? –  Nwbie Aug 28 '12 at 21:26
    
If you have a better working driver, then yes, please do, and let us know how you did it. –  mikewhatever Aug 28 '12 at 22:04
    
I did not test it with other driver, but my trouble was solved with new 3.4 kernel. Thanks. –  Nwbie Aug 31 '12 at 23:34
