XORG Crashing

Forums: 

I am having intermittent crashes with X since I switched from Ubuntu 8.04 to Mint, it always happens if I am typing something and hit enter. The screen goes black and brings me back to the login screen. I ran across this in the ubuntu forum and thought it might help.

You can try upgrading your intel driver by enabling the X-Updates PPA:
Code:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

It crashed again this morning, I will include the output from lspci
