Do you mean that you've changed xorg.conf and still have those problems?
When you installed the driver from Intel, how did you do it? What module?
Please post the output of "lsmod" and did you get the README.txt file for that?
Oh I didn't see the quote

No I didn't change xorg.conf but neither did the install of the drivers from intel.

First i extracted the tar.gz

I installed using: ./install.sh and followed the 'options'

The install of the drivers from Intel will not change your xorg.conf file.
You must change that manually, yourself. Post your modules using the
"lsmod" command so we can see which modules you have loaded.

Did changing the default depth help with your resolution problem, or is X still refusing to start?
Do you see any errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

This is a bit beyond my ability atm, but I'll tell you what I see.

Here's a look at mine on a box with an ATI chipset:
Code:
bruce@titus:~$ lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
radeon                 76800  1 
drm                    60692  2 radeon
ati_agp                 6924  1 
agpgart                29896  2 drm,ati_agp
You don't appear to have any DRM modules loaded.

I've downloaded and untarred i915Graphics.tar.gz, and
read ./dripkg/install.sh, as well as a lot more in there.
It looks to me like both the agp and drm modules should
be installed in your kernel by that script.

Issue the two commands below and post the results. You
will need to replace 2.6.13.4 with your kernel version. If you
don't know it, issue "uname -r" to find out.
Code:
bruce@titus:~$ ls -alh /lib/modules/2.6.13.4/kernel/drivers/char/drm/
total 168K
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 104 2005-10-10 21:19 ./
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 136 2005-10-10 21:19 ../
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 73K 2005-10-10 21:19 drm.ko
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 89K 2005-10-10 21:19 radeon.ko
bruce@titus:~$ ls -alh /lib/modules/2.6.13.4/kernel/drivers/char/agp/ 
total 48K
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root  112 2005-10-10 21:19 ./
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root  136 2005-10-10 21:19 ../
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  35K 2005-10-10 21:19 agpgart.ko
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 9.2K 2005-10-10 21:19 ati-agp.ko
You should have modules in both those categories. From your "lsmod"
output I suspect you only have the agpgart module.

It would also be helpful to get the output of "/sbin/lspci -v".
And which motherboard do you have, specifically? Both the
manufacturer and model number, please.

This isn't much help, but searching Google <Linux> and LQ should
give you some more results.
