The video card is an Intel 845 and uses the i810 driver.

The monitor is configured correctly in 7.10 with the proper refresh 
rates as "Plug and Play" monitor. In 8.04 it set the refresh rate to low 
and there is no option to set it correctly so I get flicker. Very 
annoying and hard on the eyes.

I've used the same monitor with Kubuntu 7.0*, 7.10, OpenSuSE 10.3, and 
Windows XP without any problem. I'm thinking somewhere there is a config 
file that I can edit to set things right but I don't know what it would 
be. Something with "x" I would think.

Life is what happens while your busy making other plans.
