Hi...

Could you open a terminal and run...

Code:
lspci -nn


and post the output for your graphics chipset?

Perhaps from that we can help you better. Smile

Regards...

Hi...

It would be the "VGA compatible controller."

Hi...

Well, a possible solution would involve you going back to an earlier release of Puppy. Wink

According to "Nerevar144" here, the last release of the Catalyst (fglrx) driver for your chipset was 9.3, which will require an older kernel.

I was able to find a .pet for this driver here but you would need to use Puppy 4.3.1. If you want to try this, you can download this version here.

Regards...
