Are you getting any errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log? You need to look for lines that start with (EE) –  Richard Holloway Sep 1 '10 at 19:32

problem in intel chip of i8XX series has been discussed before. ubuntu.stackexchange.com/questions/2672/… unfortunately there in not any proper solution. so i suggest you to switch back to ubuntu 9.10. I hope they fix this issue in 10.10 release. –  Rojan Sep 2 '10 at 2:19

Lucky you to have i855.

After selecting your username click the box in the bottom right that says GNOME and switch it to Xterm,then enter the following commands-

1)sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver

2)sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

3)sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/855gm-fix

4)sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dkms 855gm-fix-dkms

can you explain what those command are doing and what the expected outcome would be? Adding repositories and packages can break a system or a later upgrade, and should come with sufficient warnings as to what it's doing. –  ImaginaryRobots Sep 14 '10 at 15:12
