I installed 9.04 yesterday, and it was working fine with the known slow/choppy video. I fixed that issue with the use of this how to,http://www.myubuntu.ca/?p=256, and it seemed to fix my issues. At that point I was running 1280x800, but this morning when I booted up my resolution was set at 1024x748. It recognized my monitor last night, and now just shows unknown monitor. The only things I believe I changed from then to now were some Mozilla add-ons to run flash video. I'm running a Lenovo 3000N100 w/ onboard graphics, and a 15.4" 16:9 screen. I'm new to linux commands, and tried to post this thread in the absolute beginners topics, but that has been archived it looks like. Anyone have anything for me to try, or do I need to revert back to 8.10?

My computer is still doing this so I got my xorg.conf... anyone have any ideas? I think that I have the intel 950 (945g?) chipset.

I've found this link...
https://wiki.edubuntu.org/LaptopTestingTeam/Lenovo3000N100_0768/Xorg.conf

Which looks to have a completely different xorg.config, but I don't know if that works for 9.04. The machine that the sites running has the same exact monitor, and also uses the intel 950 on board video. If I copy/paste this xorg ... would it revert me back to slow/choppy video like it originally was when I loaded up Jaunty?

Well I ended up fixing the issue after some searching. I just followed this website, and it fixed my issues 100%.
