That's an unsupported kernel so you're basically on your own. If you didn't uninstall your previous kernel, revert back to it.

Thanks you catweazel for you help.
Yes I uninstall the previews kernel, to be honest I don't remember what number I think was 3.47 or 4.0.0 something like that but I am not sure.
how can I find out what kernel support this Video Card?
thanks thomas
