How to fix intel video card freezing problem in Ubuntu 10.04
A few days ago Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was released. As the name states, this version is supposed to be very stable. But it's not quite true.
If you have an intel video card of i845, i855 and other 8xx chips, most likely you're going to face a freezing problem when booting your computer as mentioned on here.

You should be all set to follow the instruction on ubuntu's website now
I got my video card working by using the first solution.
