nope, didn't help.. the fuzzy TTYs are still there. the latest logfile is attached.
could this possibly be a hardware issue? i'm just wondering because my winXP also seems to be a bit unstable.. ocassionally (not very often) it just reboots the computer while i'm in the middle of doing something, although nothing that's very graphics-intensive. doesn't give me any error messages either, just reboots it for no apparent reason.
