I would really appreciate your feedback here. I have installed 13.04 on a friends laptop - with disappointing results : the boot is slow, the log-on is slow, and launching applications is slow. Once things are up and running, they run ok. However, if I run the graphics test using the system tester application, it fails.
It is a new high the Acer laptop with Intel graphics. Obviously it looks like a problem with the graphics card, but I think I already have the latest Intel drivers.
All details below.
Thanks in advance!
- Acer AspireV3-571 Ubuntu 13.04 Kernal 3.9.0-030900rc8-generic
- The sticker on the laptop says its a Intel HD4000 graphics chip
"Details" shows this :
- Processor : Intel Core i5-3230M CPU @ 2.60GHz
- Graphics: Intel
- Ivybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 O/S Type : 32 Bit
"Additional Drivers" in "Software & Updates" shows :
- "No proprietary drivers are in use"
lspci shows :
- VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
The Graphics Test Fails. The output shows this :

I tried to install the "Intel Graphics Installer" but it shows :
