I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. Since I couldn't start the installer and only got a "Black screen" I had to start it with the "nomodeset"-parameter.
The installation went fine, after rebooting the system I still had the "Black screen"-issue so I still have to boot the system with "nomodeset".
Now I'm trying to get the right video card drivers installed. The questions are:
How do I find out my exact chip in the first place? (Since "Intel mobile 4 series" doesn't help me a lot here)
How do I install the correct drivers afterwards?
