Bug Description

1)
Description: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Release: 10.04

2)
no specific package

3)
My computer has 2 videocards: NVIDIA GeForce 7600 and Intel 945GM.

There's no problem with the standard drivers: it works with both videocards almost fine.

4)
But when I install proprietary drivers I can boot with NVIDIA card with no problem but when I boot with the Intel videocard it says it doesn't find the video configuration. When I uninstall the NVIDIA proprietary drivers everything's fine again.

I could live without the proprietary drivers, but when playing games the computer works better with them.

This is my laptop (sorry I couldn't find the official sony page.)
Sony vaio SZ1 m/b
