How do I always run in low graphics mode? In normal mode my computer crashes unexpectedly every now and again which is very frustrating when work is lost. After a crash, it gives me the option to log in using the low graphics mode. In this mode, my computer never seems to crash.

So does anyone know how I can always start in low graphics mode?

I get this problem in Ubuntu 10.04.
