This is my first time using Ubuntu from Windows and I have just installed Ubuntu 14.04, which I think is excellent.
The only problem is my ATI Radeon 3800 HD Graphics Card that I cannot get installed. I have tried everything I can think off for instance I have downloaded the driver from the AMD website and when I tried to install it AMD says I don't have any supported drivers.
After restarting my computer the screen then goes into big mode and I can't change it back to the original screen setting. I even tried using the terminal, but this does not even appear/open. I have to keep putting in the recovery disc and change back to VGA mode.
I just wonder if Ubuntu does not support this graphics card at all. I have also tried updating the additional drivers.
Didn't know they where worse than AMD. im really stuck when i downgrade. Please see the output below:
