    How-to use and troubleshoot GMA 500 (Poulsbo) video graphics

    This video card is common on a number of netbooks. How do you know you have this card?

    lspci | grep VGA
    If you have GMA 500, you will see something like
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation System Controller Hub (SCH Poulsbo) Graphics Controller (rev 07)
    UPDATE: The most updated source of information is this Hardware Support guide from Ubuntu Wiki.

    This link summarizes excellent collection of information on forums, such as Guide to Get the Best Performace from the GMA 500.
