Video issue after suspending Ubuntu 12.04

I installed the version 12.04 LTS on a Netbook Asus EEE PC 1101HA. I had a video problem at the boot time but it was solved by following these steps

>> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...eoCardsPoulsbo

I see that if I suspend the netbook there's no problem. But when I wake it up, it does it but with an issue on the video (The screen is divided in 4)

Please help me with this issue if it's possible of course.

Regards

Step By Step Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) LAMP Server Setup

In around 15 minutes, the time it takes to install Ubuntu Server Edition, you can have a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server up and ready to go. This feature, exclusive to Ubuntu Server Edition, is available at the time of installation.The LAMP option means you don’t have to install and integrate each of
the four separate LAMP components, a process which can take hours and requires someone who is skilled in the installation and configuration of the individual
applications. Instead, you get increased security, reduced time-to-install, and reduced risk of misconfiguration, all of which results in a lower cost of
ownership.Currently this installation provide PostgreSQL database, Mail Server, Open SSH Server,Samba File Server, Print Server, Tomcat Java Server,Virtual
Machine Host,Manual Package selection,LAMP and DNS options for pre-configured installations, easing the deployment of common server configurations.

mouse button reversed in Vbox

I'm running a Java based program in Trisquel 5.5 in Virtual Box hosted by Ubuntu 11.04 classic. Ubuntu mouse is set to left handed mouse as is Trisquel. The result is right handed mouse function. In order to get left hand mouse function in Trisquel I have to set it to right handed.
I think all this started after a lock-up using that Java program which required a power off vbox to get out of. Just wondering what might be going on and how to fix.
Additional driver Jockey-gtk installed in Ubuntu but not activated me thinx. Also am using mouse pointer enhancements in Ubuntu.
