my dell laptop screen is damaged. I installed ubuntu 12.04.01 with tv monitor connected. After rebooting nothing is displayed on tv monitor, is any graphic driver missing from the installation?

edit - ( captured from tv monitor display boot mode) device info from BIOS Video Controller - Intel 915M Graphics Video BIOS version - 1219 Video Memory - 8 MB

You need to connect the TV via HDMI, then select it via the display applet in system settings.

nothing is seen on the tv monitor after rebooting, so cannot select system settings – ubp123 Nov 23 '12 at 7:03
