linux xdriver=vesa

This feature changed so that you can specify which driver you want to 
use from the many available. If you know of a driver that worked for you 
in the past, you could enter that driver instead of the vesa driver.

Note, your xorg.conf file will contain whatever you select.

Another possibility for failure for the video is the setting for video 
memory is too low in BIOS. You might up the video memory for shared 
memory to see if it does you any good.
