Have you tried booting up in recovery mode and running "xfix", let run to completion then select continue with normal boot. You might also get more specific info if you told the list just what card you are using and what driver is installed for it. lspci, lshw and lsmod
may be useful to you to discover the card and driver that the OS is using.
