    My new laptop HP has the exact same video hardware and I discovered 
Hardy will not even load on this machine. Video problems. But Intrepid 
loaded right up from the LiveCD and the sound problem went away after I 
got full updates. So far everything works on the Intrepid laptop. I even 
got WiFi working.

    I do not use or even know what these software do. I have OO and it 
works fine and I can watch DVD movies on my laptop.

    Make sure the bug report is on stellarrium. I can find nothing wrong 
with Intrepid on my laptop.
