I had Ubuntu 8 running very well on a system using an Intel D815EEA2
motherboard that, in turn, uses the Intel 815 chipset and its built-in
video driver. The system uses a NEC 15" LCD monitor.
However, after I upgraded to Ubuntu 9, the video was all messed up. I
got square and rectangular spots on the screen when I clicked my mouse
on the various menus. Then it became all screwed up, and now I can't
read anything on the desktop. if I open a terminal, I can't read
anything, though it does seem to accept commands.
Is there a keystroke I can use to close the GUI and return to command
mode? Once there, can I fix the video system or do I have to go back to
