If you have a backup of the xorg.conf file from 7.10 you could try to use
that one. Other than that you could try the command
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
and select a bpp value of 24 or lower. According to this line
> (EE) S3VIRGE(0): Internal error: invalid bpp (32) in S3VScreenInit
it tried 32bpp but that value isn't accepted by the server.
