How odd that Google works so much differently for you than for me. I get 
hundreds of hits on "i915 gpu hung".  Are you sure you are not fudging 
just a little?  BTW, you knew well enough what the problem was on the 
26th of June when you were very helpful replying to my original message 
"kernel error" and suggested I query Google. Why the change?  I am going 
to assume that you are just having a bad day.
