Honestly, I can't see that helping. I have a 6910p which is newer than
your model and it works fine with the F13 intel driver, so I honestly
can't see your older model needing a newer driver.

Just out of interest, what does xrandr say about your screen? Here's
what mine says about detected resolutions:

[sam at samlap ~ ]$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y
axis) 303mm x 189mm
   1440x900       60.0*+
   1024x768       60.0
   800x600        60.3     56.2
   640x480        59.9
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV1 unknown connection (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
   1024x768       60.0
   800x600        60.3
   640x480        59.9

Here's what my xorg.conf says - it's not particularly interesting:

[sam at samlap ~ ]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
