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.
