Recently I change My mainboard and my graphic card also change, from Nvidia to Intel, both integrate.

But I don't know how to do with my graphic driver.

I try to install Intel graphic driver from this. But it seems not support 12.04 no longer.

How to switch to native driver in 12.04?

Or another advise ?

This is my graphic card's info:

xsuii@xsuii-Unknow:~$ sudo lshw -c display
*-display UNCLAIMED     
   description: VGA compatible controller
   product: 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller
   vendor: Intel Corporation
   physical id: 2
   bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
   version: 09

   configuration: latency=0
   resources: memory:fe000000-fe3fffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff ioport:f000(size=64)

lspci also says Kernel driver in use: i915 - they were automatically installed, so I do not know how to configure the drivers as such - but try searching for modprobe –  Wilf Oct 29 '13 at 17:17

Intel graphic card support is built in into Ubuntu 12.04, you don't need to install a driver separately. If you are looking for latest Intel drivers consider adding PPA by Glassen https://launchpad.net/~glasen/+archive/intel-driver

That means I'm using a built-in Intel driver? If not and it support by Ubuntu 12.04, I would like to know how to use it. Thanks. PPA may be my secondary concideration. –  xsuii Oct 30 '13 at 1:30
