Bug Description

After install the ubuntu 7.10 to Intrepid from the live CD
1) I immediately notice there are problems with the screen if I move the windows around.
2) If continue, the system will halt. Keyboard and mouse are not responding.

This bug effects Intrepid Ibex, and has effected Ubuntu since pre-feisty, please fix this issue since sis760 video is used from a wide variety of Compaq Computers

Just did some testings.

I installed 2 different versions of ubuntu to the same system -- 6.06 and 7.04
and 7.10 kubuntu.

Only 6.06 did not shown the symptoms.

Both 7.04 and 7.10 kubuntu have the same problem.

Hi! I have some symptoms that may come from the same problem.
I work with intrepid ibex on the Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo A 1640 (SIS 760 chipset) and sometimes i can't scroll normally (is it like a refreshing problem?) when i read text on gedit or when i use firefox.This is terribly boring and hard to use.
I also have another problem : there is always (on the left of the screen) many white and black lines appearing anormally.
I'd like to show you a screenshot but this (as the scroll bug) doesn't appear on it.
As I' m french, I tried to find a solution on the ubuntu-fr forum (http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=2282723#p2282723) but nobody could help me.
I know that SIS chipsets are quite problematics but hope someone will resolve this.
I also must tell you something : - The battery of my motherboard is down.
                                                   - When i use a 7.10 live CD, there's absolutely no problem (i even could watch a movie)
I join some files and hope this will help fix the bug.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. However, Intrepid is reaching EOL soon (April 2010) and Lucid's release is coming. Therefore, it's not probable that this bug wil be fixed in Intrepid. Feel free to reopen this bug if you have this problem in Karmic or higher by setting this bug's status to new.
