Dell Vostro 1000 bios 2.6.2
running from CD:
During intial setup: Language selection, loading kernel, ubuntu cylon-graphics work full-screen with NO problem.
BUT both the Beta and LTS 8.04 version generate multiple dozens of horizontal lines from the bottom of screen to about 1/3 from top of screen, making reading barely possible.
Top 1/3 is crystal clear! Turning off (default) desktop makes no change.
I can connect to network, watch video play music and use mouse and kb, but with 2/3 of screen unusable, real operation is impossible.
System > preferences > screen resolution : has no data; cannot select up/down resolution; detect display does nothing. Apply makes entire screen go black ......with many dozens of white horizontal lines.....

Mine works after the upgrade.
