Ollie, one of your links is specific to the GMA500. I do indeed have a graphics media accelerator on the motherboard, but the question is, which one? I found a chart on a wikipedia site for the Intel GMA, but I'm having trouble matching accelerator with chipset. Would anyone have any slick way of determining my accelerator?
I'd like to learn a little more before updating the driver.

lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
Changing the boot command may be necessary to fix problems with system freezes or video displays when trying to install Ubuntu.
