Hey Mo

Can you run lspci on the command line and paste the output here? If you
install openssh-server on your failing machine you should be able to SSH
to it from another box so you can copy and paste from the terminal
rather than typing the output into an email manually.

It surprises me that you need to use ndiswrapper these days and can't
get at least a VGA standard GUI. If you 'less /var/log/Xorg.0.log'
you'll be able to see your Xorg output and paste it into an email so we
can see what happened. Can't promise to solve the problem but at least
we should be able to see where it went wrong.
