This is a screenshot of AIDA64 Extreme Edition regarding North Bridge Intel Chipset Infos, where is reported that the Internal Graphics Controller is currently disabled.

The screenshot is from windows, right? But i thought you were using Linux.

Can you run "lspci -vv" and see if the integrated card is visible under Linux?

Yes, I'm writing from OEM Win8.

lspci --vv output here: http://pastebin.com/ASEZeGVz

As you can see, only the Radeon is listed as a VGA compatible controller.

Thanks!

I am still trying to contact different people - who can possibly answer your questions.

OR at least, what the "fglrx" error message means.....

From there, we will see how we can resolve this..

So, Please be patient. Thanks!

I am still working on this. Hopefully, we will know before this weekend -- whether this problem is solvable or not.

Have you seen this link?

Here in, some one has fixed the issue by fixing the Xorg.conf file

The BusID parameter was wrong. The user had found "vgaarb: this pci device is not a vga device" in the kernel.log file (/var/log/ folder ??)  and used that hint to fix the BusID.

May be, you just need to lspci to find which Bus your Radeon is in and then check re-look at your Xorg.conf file.

Just trying a quick guess.... If this does not work, dont blame me 🙂

Also, If you dont mind, Can you post your:

1. Xorg.conf file

2. lspci -v output (the link does not work from corporate firewalls).

    Please upload the files as ZIP files here (use advanced editor on right top)

the method used by the user in that post doesn't help me... i tried to remove BusID from xorg.conf but nothing to do. Moreover Win8 shows the same ubication.

Give me a bit for lspci -v
