In the second case if you think your 3D support is dodgy, just go and edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf, comment out "load dri" and "load glx" and replace whatever driver it's using with "vesa". That basically means no 3D at all... but it also could mean no more freezes.
I noticed this on a Compaq Presario 1715AP.
I think that if you don't have a separate Prtscr/Sysreq key this may not be possible
