Hi Carlos. I wouldnt think the issue is a virus. It sounds more like hardware issues, compatibility perhaps.
Few questions for you.
Is this install in a Laptop or in a Desktop? When you said after shutdown doesn't work do you mean after going to hibernation/suspend ? what video card do you have? some video cards require tweaking the drive to make it work.
Have you installed all the upgrades available for your distribution?
If yo provide more information about your system perhaps somebody here would be able to help.

Good luck to you.

If your computer "goes black" and shuts down suddenly, it's either a major error like a failure in the video driver or x-server, or some kind of hardware issue like bad memory or an overheating cpu. I'd try to run in "safe mode", with a vesa driver first, to see if that helps. Have you installed all available updates?

GeForce 2MX is a very old adapter, which might be your problem if you're trying to run a newer driver.
