i usually find out my hardware info through lspci -vv.

for instance:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. 86C270-294 Savage/IX-MV (rev
11) (prog-if 00 [VGA])

is my first line after running the aforementioned command. the S3 Inc.
is the company name and the Savage is the chipset (the part you want).

then run dpkg-reconfigure with that info.
