First, sorry for my poor english.

I am enjoying very much Ubuntu 12.10, but I have a problem with the ATI video driver.

I want to download the driver from AMD web page, but I can't indentify the respective driver for my notebook HP Pavilion DM1-4160sp.

I tried E-series-apu, Radeon HD series 6310...

So far all failed even jockey can't help me, it always sends the same error: "/var/log/jockey.log".

So, I need to know which is the option I have to choose in AMD web page to get the proper driver for my laptop.

I don't want to use open source driver, it makes my pc too hot.
