thats great news!OGM! Thanks so much. Gnome didn't want to let me in but I had reset its configuration on resolution and I'm in.
It's 1360x768 though and I have six rows of pixels on the right unused but it's much much better than before and the notebook is usable now.
Thanks again to all of you and you can post this drivers as working on (at least one Asus K50c with Ubuntu 10.04.
