Ok, what that means is that you have the i810 driver. This next step can cause problems. Make sure you are on a machine that you can get to this forum in case we mess up your x configuration.

Here is what you need to do:

sudo su -
cd /etc/X11
cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.working
vi xorg.conf
:/Driver/ s/intel/i810/

This will create a will change you to root user, create a backup, edit the xorg.conf file, and change the Intel driver to the i810 driver. I am assuming that you have used vi before. If not, use whatever editor you are used to.

Now comes the scary part... press: ctl-alt-backspace

This will restart your xserver. If your server comes back all is good. If not. You will need to copy the xorg.conf.working file over the xorg.conf file and reboot.
