==============================================================

actually I figured out this is an issue of intel video driver:http://lkml.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0902.3/01703.html

==============================================================

I am using ubuntu 10.0.4 TLS, and this is my main board info: http://www.made-in-china.com/showroom/geshem/product-detailbqfJOksvrXcn/China-Mainboard-ITX-WN45A-D.html

These error messages were from /var/log/messages

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

    
You seem to be missing some lines before each of these. Look in /var/log/kern.log and see if there are better messages there perhaps? I'm guessing that it's an Oops of somekind in the video driver (i915). – DerfK Dec 17 '10 at 2:49
    
@DerfK, I've updated my post to add kern.log messages, could you take a look at it? – Mickey Shine Dec 17 '10 at 3:13
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28805

Try to upgrade to kernel 2.6.36 and see if it works.
