Hi dentaku65,

Please attach the output of `lspci -vvnn` and `dmesg`, and attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (and maybe Xorg.0.log.old) file from after reproducing this issue. If you're using a custom /etc/X11/xorg.conf please attach that as well.

I have the same problem with an aging Thinkpad X40. Note that kernel 2.6.31-09-generic boots fine with it.

Here is the output of `lspci -vvnn` and `dmesg`.

After yesterday's updates with the 2.6.31-13 kernel, the splash screen appeared.

Do you see this issue with 10.04 also do you see this issue with 9.10 & 2.6.31-20 kernel?

Things are working properly in Ubuntu 10.10 (maverick). I haven't upgraded to natty yet, so I cannot tell.
