Thanks devils, I'm still struggling with this one. I ended up giving Ubuntu a shot, just to see if maybe something in there would give me a little better results.

Got the exact same results though, everything works like a charm except the video. I just installed Ubuntu on my desktop today and have managed to get everything but the sound working. Have another slower desktop and tossed OpenSuSE on that one and it went off without a hitch.

I'm sure the 915resolution thing would work in the Ubuntu install on the laptop, but I havn't done that yet, as the OS obviously doesn't feel or respond right with the improper drivers running the machine.

I sure hope you or oldcpu are able to think of something, cause I'm still coming up empty on this one.
