Ok, so my video card is quite old and there's probably no support left for it. I downloaded the drivers from the ATI site and tried to install them I got an error after it extracted the files and started to install.

It may seem like I'm asking alot but could anybody help me by explaining step by step how to get the drivers installed, I don't know how to uninstall the old drivers, which is probably the problem in the first place, I didn't install the drivers they were default with Ubuntu 10.10.

I'm a newb to Linux so I have pretty well no idea what I'm doing, I've found the terminal which I assume is like Windows CMD/DOS.
