My problem is: i use the Dell Vostro 3300 und Ubuntu Lucid 10.04. The VGA for the external monitor
is flickering. The problem seams to be the Intel GMA X4500HD . So, do you know 1.) what i can do? or 2.) where i can find a Driver for the Intel GMA
X4500HD - maybe a dep-packet, because i am a absolut beginner.

Same problem on a Dell Vostro 3300 bought last week... I didn't activate the nVidia display driver (I've read that it's not working due to hybrid graphics stuff). And I can't use an external monitor or a beamer, that's too ugly : text can't be read !

So the screen is detected, I can change the resolution or the refresh rate but the image is flickering too much !

Any ideas ?
