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.
