The versions you are using are a little out of date now. The i810 (now
called intel FYI) is now 2.0 final and the xserver is also now 1.3 final.

915resolution is not needed with this 2.0 series of intel driver.

You may want to try updating to these versions and disable 915res and
try again. Not saying it will help but at least you'll be giving it the
best chance ;)
