Unfortunately there is a bug (in the kernel ? ) that impacts many 855GM graphics devices, where the last kernel without the bug may have been the 2.6.27 kernel.
You can read up more on it here:
You are welcome to join the bug fix testing by downloading the liveCD
noted in that thread and test, and then after a few hours of running, if you have not had a problem/crash, post your result on the freedesktop bug thread
that is tracking this problem. There is a fix-i855-cache-coherency-v9.patch that is being tested, and that fix is in the liveCD
I noted. ... I should say further that I am NOT a Ubuntu fan (very far from it), but in this case this bug hits all distributions and it endeavors us to work together to solve this problem. If a Fedora liveCD were to be created with the patch, I would definitely test it.
