I have an error with recognize my Intel HD Graphics. I Googled my problem, and found, that there are a bug for a long time. This is bug 914631. Almost all folks solve this problem, just typed two commands in terminal, which install mesa-utils.

It seems works for everyone, except me.

So, I typed in Terminal:

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

It was installed. But after rebooting nothing has changed.

There are still recognized only i915 video driver (Intel GMA)

VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18)

From your lshw output, it seems like the correct driver (i915) is already loaded and recognized correctly. Does it display incorrectly in System Settings -> Details? You should be able to run 3D programs like glxgears and also have full Unity running. Perhaps you could include the output of glxinfo? –  yjwong Nov 14 '13 at 18:08
