Uh, why are you using i810? What Ubuntu version are you running?
For an in-depth discussion of why not to use i810:

The Ubuntu-help page for short (first paragraph):
"It [the intel driver] is more up to date, has similar configuration
settings, and, most importantly, you do not need the i915 tool anymore.
This means your fancy monitor with a strange resolution will work out
of the box."
So, maybe consider using the intel driver instead.
