My laptop Lenovo G500 has a Radeon HD 8570M video card and Intel HD4000! Processor Intel 2020M. Kubuntu 13.10
I'm keen on to find wether my laptop has another graphic processor or not?
and so, how to enable AMD for usage?
How should i find this? (for start X I must use "nomodeset")
I installed already
sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-pxpress
when it was installed and reboot PC i have only black screen (F12 don't help) or just show a console login :/
lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
sudo lshw -C video

I have only this: xorg.conf.fglrx-0 but this is old xorg conf when I have already installed fglrx driver and I have:
xorg.conf.original-0: # NOXORGCONFEXISTED: No X.org configuration file existed when this backup was created.
