I recently bought a netbook Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E130 (Video card Intel HD Graphics, CPU Intel Pentium B997 ULV) on which I installed Ubuntu 12.10 64 bits.

A systematic bug makes it annoying to use the laptop.

Regulary, a pop-up shows up, says that the system is bugging. Then, another one, which says:

Apport has detected a possible GPU hang. Did your system recently lock up and/or require a hard reboot?"

If I read the bug report, it says:

 [sandybridge-m-gt1] GPU lockup IPEHR: 0x41100000 IPEHR:0x0b140001 

If I understand, it affects xserver-xorg-video-intel, but I don't understand what is the problem.

Here is the output from my /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Does someone have an idea to fix the problem?

This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions on filing a bug report are here. – Thomas Ward Mar 20 '13 at 20:29
This should be reported as a bug. You can make Apport collect and submit the necessary technical information--but still make sure to read the bug reporting documentation first, and describe the problem thoroughly in the bug report you write in the web browser (which will come up automatically after Apport sends the data). – Eliah Kagan Mar 21 '13 at 1:53
This bug is corrected in Ubuntu 13.04. – ulrich Apr 1 '13 at 15:24
