Strange graphics on Intel 810

Hello, World!

I've runned Linux for a while now (I know what it is). But now I've got a on-board Intel 810 graphics card. On Debian, Fedora, CentOS and other RedHat based distros it's working fine, but as soon as I install Arch, Slackware or something like that, the graphics becomes terrible. I can only see a black background and a extreme color mess. I've tried to choose Intel 810 on xorgconfig, xorgconf and the xfree86 utilities, but it's the same mess. Is there any driver or software which can fix this problem???

It sounds like your xorg.conf is not configured properly. Check the stats for your monitor including horizontal and vertical frequency ranges.

With Arch -
hwd -xa
With Slackware -
Xorg -confgure
colour depth can only go to 24
modes - try 1280x1024

Here is part of my xorg
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier "Monitor0"
		Option "DPMS" "true"
		HorizSync    30.0 - 95.0 # Warning: This may fry old Monitors
		VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0 # High rate.

and the kernel configuration is the same? I had to monkey around with quite a few kernel configs to get onboard video going on an intel mobo.
