Mhwd unable of finding the intel graphics card

using the command lspci, unable to see VGA of intel CPU
using the command mhwd -lh, unable to see it as well
however, using cat /proc/cpuinfo, the info is correct, it shows 11500 here

Hi @TheDishonored,

Please provide the output of:

mhwd --list

Also for all the commands you’ve run as well as the information asked for here: How to provide good information and, if applicable, see: [HowTo] post screenshots and links

Please remember to wrap any console output in three backtics (```), adding the three backtics before as well as after console pasted output. Like this:

pasted text

Alternatively, you can select it once pasted and click the </> button on the editor’s toolbar.

This just formats it properly for displaying.

 mhwd --list

so, the above one is the result of the mhwd --list.
Here is the mhwd -lh

The reason why I want to see intel graphics card, is because that I initially wanted to set xorg.conf to use the internal graphics card running the lightdm service, however, lspci command cannot see intel graphics card, therefore i assumed that this is because the lack of driver, so i checked the mhwd, and it still cannot see the internal graphics, here is lspci

Intel is part of the video-linux driver package.


Thanks, but why cannot I see it inside the lspci ? I need the pci num of internal graphics card to modify the xorg.conf file

You sure you have a iGPU?,I suspect there is no iGPU at all,that can happen if you have a high end laptop,those laptops usually don’t come with iGPUs.

That shows the CPU name,not really the GPU I think.

Then you must have disabled it on BIOS/UEFI level.
