I've seen some weird things as well on pretty much identical systems
under windows, I was simply saying that blaming it just on the onboard
video didn't seem right just simply cause it was onboard and intel i810.
Could be a combination of the firmware, motherboard revision, amount of
ram to the video card or any other issue. I was just saying that the
version I had was working fine but like everything, what works for me
may not work for you.
