It will most likely be with the GPU: I had similar problems with some Dell
Vostro 6x00 laptops a few months ago, can't remember the detail now but some
Intel HD GPUs aren't properly supported as yet (to my knowledge - I was
using 10.10 and haven't tested 11.04). You'd have to get the model number
for more specific information.
