I have a HP dv5t notebook with the Intel X4500 integrated graphics card.

Attached is the ROM snippet.

Smolt profile:

xrandr output:
[root at jmert-linux ~]# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
LVDS1 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
331mm x 207mm
   1680x1050      60.0*+
DVI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

My integrated display works fine at the given resolution, I have a VGA
port I don't use, and DVI1 is actually an HDMI interface.  HDMI video
output works, but I haven't managed to get sounds through the interface,
