Reinstalling default graphics drivers

Postby shorty1k on Thu Nov 19, 2009 4:30 am

Hey there, I'm pretty new at this. I just installed Mint the day before yesterday. I had some problems with Ubuntu and Mint was recommended to me. Needless to say I think this is the distro for me! I've been having a lot of fun learning the ins and outs of it when I decided to see if I could find better video drivers for my ATI mobility x1400. I ended up goofing my video several times, but luckily I figured out to fix it by uninstalling ati drivers using envyng -t, which usually fixed it. Now I just want the drivers that came with mint since now I can't up my resolution anymore, but I can't figure out how to get those back other than starting fresh. Please help! Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks for the response! That doesn't show up on my list unfortunatly. All I have on my list is the driver for my wifi card since it says "Proprietary drivers are being used to make this computer run properly"
