Try just 'vesa'...aside from that, can you replace the card, boot the
installed system to runlevel 3, run 'startx' and see what happens?
Assuming it hangs, reboot to runlevel 3 again and take a copy
of /var/log/Xorg.0.log before doing whatever you need to do to get
graphics back, so we can see the log of a failed attempt to start X and
try and figure out what's wrong.
