I'm trying to figure out how to force my gfx card to use i915 kernel driver. My card according to lspci is
Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07).
The reason I want this is because all videos play in slow motion. I asked around and was told to look at
lspci -k output. It says VGA is not using any kernel drivers. I booted my computer off LiveCD, looked at
lspci -k output and saw the line
Kernel driver in use: i915, so that is why I want to force it.
lsmod on LiveCD lists
i915 with a 4 next to it, whereas there is a 0 next to it on the installed system. I am on 14.04 at the moment, and this problem with the installation of 14.04. Please help me.
$ lspci -k Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07) Subsystem: Lenovo Device 20e4 $ lsmod | grep i915: i915 705396 0 i2c_algo_bit 13197 1 i915 drm_kms_helper 46907 1 i915 video 18903 1 i915 drm 243792 2 i915 drm_kms_helper
These are on the installed system.
