Updating ati graphics
I have recently updates my 5 yrs old HP dv5 AMD laptop to Ubuntu 14.04, all good so far just that I am not able to grasp the right process to install drivers for the ATI Radeon card provided in this laptop.
Though I am happy with the current graphics on the monitor just that I am not able to change the resolution setting, default I am getting below options: "1280 x 800" and below, nothing over it.

To fix problems with these features or to take advantage of them, you may need to update your graphics card drivers. If your distribution's standard update process doesn't give you the latest drivers, you may need to look for other package repositories for your distribution.
For example, to upgrade closed-source drivers on Ubuntu, you may need to go to System Settings Reboot your computer to use the new graphics driver.
