Please define "lost color"! Do you see everything in black and white?
Also, please open the Terminal, enter the (exact) command below and post the output for us:

lshw -c display

also what is the output of:

sudo dmidecode -t 1; lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

 It is not B & W but it is highly degraded. At one time the color was very good..not excellent. I have an older boc running Ubuntu 8.10 or something and the colors are vivid. This one has neber been that good.

I am in the process of upgrading to 12.10 step by step. The color has not improved. I ran an update on the xorg intel video card. The system said it was the latest version.

Close

I upgraded to 12.04
