    If you have XP, do a rollback to the previous drivers.
    If not, change your graphics to the standard VGA. In Device Manager, click on your Display Adapter, select properties, select the tab Drivers and uninstall the drivers.
    Then select (Update to) VGA if Windoze does not offer this.

    Reboot in normal mode. You will still be on the standard VGA in 640x480 mode.
    Now install the proper drivers and all should be well again.
