Hi Gary,

what issue are you trying to solve exactly, what is the graphic circuit 
in your laptop ? (NVidia, AMD, Intel ?) Did you try different drivers 
for this graphic adapter ?

In 10.04 you can easily try a newer kernel (3.5 from 12.10) by 
installing the package "linux-generic-lts-quantal" . But it may not 
solve your graphic problem if you need a proprietary driver for you 
graphic adapter to work properly.
