Hi Andy

For starters look in the logs of /var/log ... 
If the logs for the X server and the kernel dont show anything
interesting then try to change the driver for the video card to some
other version, then you can try a Live CD (like Knoppix) and see if
that gives the same results.

If all of these give you no clues then I think it is a hardware problem.
