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.
