my computers configuration as follows:

Chipset Intel® GL40 Express Chipset
Graphics Intel® GMA X4500HD
Memory DDRII-667 1GB
Drive 160 GB (5400RPM - SATA)

Welcome to the forums !!!

If you have the connection to do so, please download 11.2, it probably will handle the card correctly, with a newer kernel and Xorg.

You could also add the Xorg repo, and see if that provides the necessary X driver for your card:
