    Fallback Mode after switching graphics card (Linux Mint)

    I recently switched graphics card to a VGA D33A27. The VGA/DVI displays work but when booting up Linux Mint goes into fallback mode. I have tried installing a fresh version of mint but same issue. Do I need to get propriety drivers? Or change BIOS settings? Any ideas much appreciated.
