    When the screen goes all wonky, does hitting CTRL+ALT+F1 get you to a console log in screen?

    If so, log in as root and launch Mandriva's graphics configuration tool.
    Code:
    xfdrake
    Or you can boot into a console to do the same. I think for Mandriva, at the GRUB screen hit F3, select default, then enter 3 (for runlevel 3).
