[SOLVED] Graphics driver for HP Pavilion g6 series laptop

Post by kernowmint »

Vincent suggested on another thread that I try this forum section for help with finding a graphics driver for my new laptop so I don't have to keep using nomodeset and acpi=off and then having to force a shutdown with the power button.

Here is the output from inxi -Fc 0:

System: Host carolyn-laptop Kernel 2.6.32-21-generic x86_64 (64 bit) Distro Linux Mint 9 Isadora

Info: Processes 162 Uptime 1 min Memory 339.3/5930.9MB Client Shell inxi 1.

As you can see, I've put Isadora on temporarily, but I really want to be able to run Mint 13 properly when it comes out.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
Many thanks.

[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

Well, that seems to have worked OK. Thank you remoulder, you've saved a new laptop from becoming a sold-as-nearly-new laptop :D

And thank you Vincent for directing me to the right thread.

I think I can call this one solved at last, about after about 2 months of trawling through forums. Hooray!!!!!!!
