Try to set the driver in "xorg.conf" from "i810" to "intel". The latter works very well now with the 965Q integrated graphics. Occasionally, I encounter a horizontally compressed image with black borders above and below the picture in conjunction with a 19" monitor having 1280x1024 pixels. Resetting the "X" server helps in this case.
A 1920x1200 wide screen monitor gets detected and set up correctly in my case.
