Curious, I would have thought a corrupt driver would just plain fail. Have you experienced this effect from corrupt drivers before?

Can you boot to single user - text only?
You should check /etc/X11/xorg.conf to make sure the correct driver is being used.

Driver notes. Important info for linux/SiS-graphics owners.
