Desktop BIOS problem?


I have an HP Pavilion 8650C with a i810 onboard Intel graphics card. The card has worked on past systems. I have the latest XFree86 that Debian Sarge provides.

Can someone help me? I included my glxinfo, dmesg, and XFree86Config-4 snippets below.

Code:
glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
Here is my dmesg:

Code:
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
[drm] AGP 0.99 Aperture @ 0xf8000000 64MB
[drm] Initialized i810 1.2.1 20020211 on minor 0
[drm:i810_unlock] *ERROR* Process 1294 using kernel context 0

Here are snippets from XFree86Config-4 that I think are relevant:

Code:
Section "Module"
        Load    "GLcore"
        Load    "bitmap"
        Load    "dbe"
        Load    "ddc"
        Load    "dri"
        Load    "extmod"
        Load    "freetype"
        Load    "glx"
        Load    "int10"
        Load    "record"
        Load    "speedo"
        Load    "type1"
        Load    "vbe"
EndSection
Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Generic Video Card"
        Driver          "i810"
EndSection
Code:
Section "DRI"
        Mode    0666
EndSection

Sorry. I have no direct rendering for my onboard Intel i810 card. I'm really suspicious that the problem is here:

Code:
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
[drm] AGP 0.99 Aperture @ 0xf8000000 64MB
[drm] Initialized i810 1.2.1 20020211 on minor 0
[drm:i810_unlock] *ERROR* Process 1294 using kernel context 0
