I just bought a Dell Inspiron laptop. This is currently being used as a desktop replacement. The CPU is the intel i5 quad core with a GMA HD integrated graphic. I've been searching my hair out and can't find anything related to this specific card and ubuntu. I've installed Karmic and it displays 1600 by 900 fine. The problem Im having is that video played on movie player is extremely choppy. Youtube video is a bit better but not great. I did a system update and my xorg has a -intel prefix.
From time to time, my computer locks up when I perform certain tasks. For eample, glxgears will not display and lock up my computer. Compiz does not work. Im getting extremely frustrated. A brand new computer having trouble with ubuntu?
I've checked System>Administration>Hardware Drivers but there is nothing listed.
