Lots to poke around and look for in there. I might start at dmesg myself.

Thanks all.  I will post more when I have time but the inxi -G results are below:

$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card: Intel Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary)
           X.Org: 1.15.1 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: [email protected]

Hello JukeUK,

I have only experience of one graphics card on Linux, see thread a few below yours. Hopefully some other members will be able to help.
To start I will try to help.

Which browser is being used when this occurs please ?
Have you tested if the same occurs when using a different browser ?

Do you have the restricted extras installed ?

Have you run/can you run Memtest86 http://www.memtest86.com/  to test the memory ?

Do you have an option in the drivers for other/ open source driver ?
It may be possible to purge the Intel driver and try this and see if the same occurs.

Whilst looking around a little for you I noticed with some aspects of this Intel driver if upgrades are done on ubuntu based OS it damages the install, and the solutions found were a clean install of the OS.
Have you installed the driver and then upgraded it or the Intel supporting application?
I am not saying to do a clean install as you can try the above, and many other things first, it is so members are aware of details.

Bump for the op .

inxi -G Terminal results would help mate .


I've just installed LL 2.2 on an HP 6910p laptop.  When I play videos on Youtube or go to Google Inbox,the webpage will become unresponsive after a while and then the screen will go blank.  The only way I know to get the screen back on is to do a hard reset.  The video card in the laptop is an Intel X3100.  I have tried disabling the screen saver but this hasn't had any effect.

Has anyone else experienced this or know how to cure the problem. I have noticed that the screen flickers occasionally so I think it may be a driver problem. I am very new to  Linux so if any logs or versions that are needed then I will need some direction of where or how to find them
