The splash screen and greeter are already in the wrong screen
resolution, so it's not the user as such. Oh, and the wifi network
doesn't come up; that's different too. So I think it's some kind of
disconnect between the kernel and the rest of the system (drivers etc),
as if the install of the new components did not complete.
