Does anyone know how to change the graphics driver in 11.04 from i915 to intel?

You shouldn't need to do anything, the "intel" driver covers i915 card already and it's the default driver in Ubuntu anyway.

You can try to create an xorg.conf file by typing:

sudo Xorg -configure

and then edit the [Device] section with the driver you want.
