First of all, I am using a Nvidia GeForce 8400GS on Jaunty, and the driver for it was working just fine until last night, after attempting to play a game through wine (which promptly crashed at start). After that I got the typical distorted screen when ever an X-server issue arises. After fixing X through recovery mode, I re-installed the driver, and rebooted my computer. The login screen come up clear as it always does, but after logging in, I was greeted with the same problem. Whenever I try to view the logs, the gnome log viewer either runs really slow, or simply doesn't respond. I did manage to gather that whenever the driver is re-installed, that I get a message about X-server failing to load on those sessions. Does anyone have any suggestions on a fix, or even what file could possibly have been corrupted? I have already to rolling back the drivers, to no avail, and even after restart the log viewer still causes CPU spikes upon opening. Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe this information will help me get an answer to what is happening on my system:
