This question already has an answer here:
I have an Asus Eee PC 900. I had just gotten it from eBay two days ago. Since then it has been working fine except that the graphics were a little buggy and slow. A message appeared on the screen today saying:
The system is running in low-graphics mode
Your screen, graphics cards, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself.
I couldn't get to my regular desktop, and I am stuck in low graphics mode. A forum post told me to install the Nvidia driver and gave me a code to install it. I don't know how to do that, and I am not sure what version of Linux I have.
How can I fix this problem?
