I'm assuming that you upgraded your system from the package manager with 
dist-upgrade. Well the best way to test whether your graphics card will 
work with 11.04 would be to have a live cd/dvd and run it. if it runs 
well, then you'll know for sure, that 11.04 should run on your system 
without any problem.

now, if your X is giving you errors, first thing is to check the logs. 
you can goto terminal press "CTRL+ALT+F1" or F2 - F6 to goto any of the 
tty's. login and then check the log files for X, /var/log/X.log. It'll 
surely give you the cause of the problem. paste the entire X.log file to 
some pastebin and put the link here to us to review it. you can install 
pastebinit or wgetpastebin. by these utils, you can paste the entire 
file to pastebin via command line. One you get the cause or exact error, 
then we could suggest further solution.
