Steve,

Here's the part I noticed and may be able to provide some help with:

Note the i915 driver in use. There are some kernel versions that do not play
nicely with the Intel video card in your machine. There are several possible
solutions, but try this one first:

First try this item upon 1st or any subsequent boot of your 10.x
*upgraded*system:

   - Due to the Intel graphics driver, access the grub2 menu by holding
   shift down immediately after BIOS post, edit the regular (usually the 1st)
   boot selection by pressing e, add “i915.modeset=1” after “...quiet splash ”,
   then boot by pressing ctrl-x. Try using the system after booting with this
   boot option in place to see if quirks still occur. They may. A Dell D505 I
   had at work had a lingering flicker with the switch (and it didn't even boot
   without the modeset switch), which I was only able to (reasonably) eliminate
   by using a newer kernel, which I can go into once you have tested the
   modeset boot option to see if that resolves the issue(s).

Let me know if the modeset switch does the trick. If it doesn't, I have some
workable instruction on how to use a newer kernel that handles the Intel
chipset as gracefully as we might hope for, which is that it works without
irritating quirks.
