You have sandy bridge intel graphics that are not currently supported in lucid.

My linked answer below should in theory work - although the OP had issues.

Therefore I recommend that if you want to try this, do a hard-drive image backup first with clonezilla.

Alternatively - upgrade to at least Maverick - or preferably Natty which does have native Sandy Bridge support.
