I'm not sure if the adapter is a factor or not; however, double-check
the /etc/vga/libvga.config file to make sure the changes "took". I've
editted a file a time or two and thought I saved the changes just to
find out later that I editted it as a normal user instead of as root,
and therefore the file wasn't saved.
If that doesn't pan out, you may just need to ask again so someone more
knowledgeable than me can answer.
