I posted in the noob forum, but i'm not getting much response, so i thought i'd ask uptop. I recently got a laptop custom built for me. I had them partition my harddrive and put linux on it. They ended up putting mint on it, which for the first few days seemed pretty cool. however, after i tried to use some of the special functions of the desktop, (as the "box" advertised) i ran into the brick wall that perhaps my driver was wrong. I proceeded to have my builder take a look at it and he loaded an experimental intel driver. I was not present when he did this, but apparently he used the forums here to find out which one to use. So far i have neither been able to run the cool advanced desktop effects, nor have i been able to see any of the cool screen savers that came with linux. I seem to be up a creek without a paddle. So first thing i want to ask, is where do i go to specifically find out what graphics card i have, and after that (i'm assuming its some sort of intel graphics card (which doesn't make much sense to me)) what driver i should use to be able to take full affect of the linux advanced desktop effects. Any information would be helpful. Thank you!
