I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10...my touchpad has stopped working for no apparent reason. And when i try to boot into 2.6.31 kernel...my screen goes blank. I have been searching through forums but nothing has helped so far.....someone please suggest something.

Use a LiveCD/USB to backup your data to an external drive and do a fresh install of 9.10.

Oops, sorry about the generic answer then. What graphics hardware do you have?

I am using Acer travelmate 290. It has a builtin intel graphics hardware....i think i855.
