yeah...mine was doing the's going south or black because he can't
decide which of the 12 xorg.conf files to use. i figured this out only after
going into recovery mode and checking out my xorg.conf file...then i saw the
8 or 9 that were sitting in there. i already knew which was the original
because i had created a backup before i even began to mess with drivers 'n
such. i guess you can say i was preparing myself for the worse.

so go into recovery and it should boot up since it won't startx. once you
are logged in, check /etc/X11 and see if you can nail down the culprit.
again this is how did it, but only because i had created a backup.

i'll see if i can find something on that i810 for you and help you nail this
