Can't help you with your drivers but here is how I start and stop X:
open "Konsole" and log in as root:
su
Password: *********
once logged in as root in Konsole type:
init 3

Wait until PC is down to that level and then do what you have to do.
When finished type:
startx

This will get you back to the GUI

hope this helps
