Your system is using the i915 driver, which is the dedicated driver for several video cards.
What problem do you have with you system that you want to use a different one?

Please provide also the output of the command
lspci

The issue is solved now. Thank you so much for your help and support guys

Guys I have one question. I was viewing a HD trailer on youtube. What I noticed is video streaming is not smooth looks like some frames are stuck and display with line on frames. Buffering is not an issue here. Just the video streaming is not smooth. Why is that?

Please create a new question for the new issue

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.
