    [SOLVED] Graphics and Sound not found.....


    Hi, I've ran the Hardware Drivers, as sound is not there at all, and video is on low graphics and colors are awful....... It's found nothing, so I've gone to the ECS Website and got the names of both.

    Graphics:
    º Integrated Chrome9™ HC IGP
    º Share Memory: Maximum up to 256MB

    Audio:
    º VIA® VT1708A 6-channel High Definition audio CODEC

    I'm running the P4M900T-M2 (V1.0) motherboard.

    Linux is 10.4 Lucid

    I'd appreciate if anyone can help, and also how to install drivers once found and d/loaded

    Ubuntu 10.04 is not configuring your Graphics Card correctly. You have to create xorg.conf file manually.

    Press Alt+F2 and type this in Run Command dialog box :
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    * Its capital X in X11.

    Above command will open an empty xorg.conf file in Gedit with root privileges. Copy contents given below and paste in xorg.conf file. Save file and reboot machine.
    Code:
    Section "Device"
           Identifier "Configured Video Device"
           Driver    "vesa"  
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
             Identifier "Configured Monitor"
             HorizSync 31.5 - 70.0
             VertRefresh 50 - 160
     EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Default Screen"
            Monitor "Configured Monitor"
            Device "Configured Video Device"
            DefaultDepth 24
            Subsection "Display"
                 Depth 24
                 Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" 
            EndSubsection
    EndSection
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
