Intel Extreme driver is not loading.

My Acer 7750 laptop - simply refuses to load the Intel Extreme driver. It always boots with the VESA driver, and denies me the high resolution I expect.
'listdev' shows the following - so I know the 'Intel Extreme' is there.
device Display controller (VGA compatible controller, VGA controller) [3|0|0] vendor 8086: Intel Corporation device 0116: 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller
In the Syslog file - the intel_extreme driver stops after the message: "error: could not map GART aperture!"
I am attaching the lisdev and syslog files.
I have tried to research this - and it seems similar to the very old ticket #1969
I tested this with a GCC4 compile of hrev 45814. On a ACER 7750 laptop (i7, HD3000).
