Viruses. You're writing in English. Besides, "virii" cannot be a word unless the singular form is "virius" so says the Latin grammar.

Have you tried a clean install? Ubuntu upgrades have always been terribly flaky. It's possible your crashes are happening because Xorg is still set to use some old binary driver that no longer exists or is incompatible with your current system/kernel.

You can always try this as root:

mv /etc/X11/xorg.cong /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak

Then restart and see if it works. It should, because Cannonical claims to ship a "bulletproof X."

At the very least it should get you into VESA compatibility, and then you can install the appropriate drivers using whatever tools Ubuntu provides for this purpose.
