Solve Screen Flicker Ubuntu on eMachines Laptop

When I start using Ubuntu Linux, some years ago I have no problem on it. Firstly, I use Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty jackalope on my eMachines. Then, I update on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and the problem was appeared. Every minutes, my display getting flicker and it really annoyed me. After trying some methods, I get this problem goes away. My eMachines is D275, and it might works for other eMachines types or maybe for other laptops which has screen flickering.
To solve that problem, just open your apt.conf, the code is listed here,

sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.conf

Find this or similar on your grub.cfg (use: sudo nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg)

Linux    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-26-generic root=UUID=c3732ca6-61fa-48c6-b115-6ed668cdeedd ro quiet splash

for more speed on start up delete "quite splash" on above and add the code below after it,

So, the codes on the line become
Linux    /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-26-generic root=UUID=c3732ca6-61fa-48c6-b115-6ed668cdeedd ro i915.powersave=0
Save it (Ctrl+x).
It works on my eMachines D725, I hope it also works on your machine.
