What is your output of lspci?

Should look something like this if you have the i810:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82810 GMCH [Graphics Memory Controller Hub] (rev 03)

And when you run xf86config a root since Slackware doesn't configure X during installation, when viewing the card database, did you select number 15 I believe it is in the list for the i810?

Also always make sure your putting in the correct hsync and vsync rates for your monitor.

Regards.

Run xwmconfig to change your default desktop.

Cheers.
