When the console turns black, is the machine still usable?  (For example,
can you use ctrl-alt-delete to reboot?)  Please also check whether booting
in "recovery mode" with xserver-xorg-video-intel installed works.

If it does, please get "dmesg" output and output from

	/usr/share/bug/xserver-xorg-video-intel/script 3>&1

after booting and reproducing the problem.  It should be possible to
get this information by either "driving blind" or ssh-ing in from
another machine.

Thanks and hope that helps,
