Hi all,

I have a laptop which is capable of geting 1400x1050, but my bios 
doesn't present this mode to i810 driver.

Is there any chance i810 driver not rely in bios to program video modes?

For while, I'm testing this program which changes the vbios and add the 
1400 mode, but I'm getting an strange message about xvideo disabled[1].

Thanks in advance
