It does have an Intel chipset.
This never occurs when I boot on windows, although it occasionally has random total freeze-ups, where the only way to escape is to remove the battery, but this doesn't happen very often.
So, if it is a motherboard driver, how would I go about fixing that?
Also, where do find lists like that. Thanks.
I deleted the empty partition, and expanded the Windows partition to use the unallocated 28 GB. It seemed to work perfectly fine, while I was on Windows. However, I shut down, and when I started it up again, I got this:
error: no such partition.
I looked at some other threads about this problem, but on trying a lot of the suggestions, I just got "Unknown command",
Please tell me what I did wrong, and how I can fix this, or direct me to a thread with instructions that should work for this version.

sudo os-prober gave me this:
/dev/sda1:Windows Recovery Environment (loader):Windows:chain
/dev/sda2:Windows Vista (loader):Windows1:chain
