I've tried every suggestion that I've looked at online. My card is a Radeon HD 4250. I've installed fglrx to no avail. After install I just either go into low graphics mode or it will detect my card as VESA: RS880 and none of my games will work that use 3D. I've done terminal install of fglrx and even used AMD's site, both of which do not work. I looked into jockey and Additional Drivers and it shows nothing. I'm not sure what's going on, but my old roommate had it working at one point. I did a fresh install and cannot figure out how to get it back to playing games.
I'd appreciate any help or anyone pointing me in the right direction. As I said, I've tried everything I can search so far and nothing has helped, hence the new question.
