Wrong detection of graphics hardware

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a VAIO VPCEA23EN laptop with ATI Radeon H 5145 graphics but when I installed the drivers from Additional Hardware (proprietory drivers) its showing it as ATI Radeon HD 4500. Video quality is also not as good as that when I play the same video in VLC in Windows 7. (HowTos)
