ATI Mobility Radeon 9600/9700 under Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy

To get the Advanced graphic effects working add the following to then end of your kernel /boot line in /boot/grub/menu.lst

highres=off nohz=off irqpoll

So now your kernel line should look something like this

kernel /boot/vmlinuz- root=UID=a7e7a1el-97df-4718-be2b-2cbe5e4ad1e8 ro quiet splash xforcevesa highres=off nohz=off irqpoll

Now you should have a laptop that wont freeze up when enabling advanced graphic effects.
