There are a number of bugs in launchpad which cite i915.  Can you go to


and search on i915.  There is a list of about 174 bugs that will be
shown.  I suggest you look at the ones that explicitly mention i915 in
the description and see if any have a workaround mentioned. Also you can
add yourself to the most relevant bug by clicking on 'Does this bug
affect you'.
