I'd also be willing to bet (were I a betting man) that you have an Intel
graphics chipset and you will find (if you take a look in your dmesg or system
logs) messages in the style of:
[drm:i915_get_vblank_counter] *ERROR* trying to get vblank count for disabled
If so, unfortunately Ubuntu (and Linux mostly at the moment) is not for you
because someone decided we should all have an experimental (broken!) Intel
driver. There are a number of bugs related to this but it appears the intel
driver brokenness is at the root of most (all?) of them.
Let me know if I'm close to the mark :)
