it happened last night, X was crashed and logging caused more kernel 
errors. Also yesterday afternoon, the hard drive started clicking, and ls 
would hang. I unmounted the hard drive and set it horizintal , and 
that seemed to fix that, I doubt that would be caused by the video card,

There were to setting I changed when I dissables the onboard video: I xset 
the VGA setting jumper (VEN_DIS) to disable, and the VGA interrupt 
selection to disable, which from the mother board discriptions the second 
should disable the "chipsets internal interrupt routing", I assume only 
for the onboard video only.
