Does this also happen when you boot to single user mode?

If it does, then I'm not sure what's wrong - sounds like some hardware 
incompatibility. Maybe someone can tell after seeing the dmesg.

If it doesn't then I'm curious exactly what kind of install did you do? 
What distributions did you choose to install? It may be worth to 
install only the bare minimum at first and later add everything else 
via ports/packages - that's what I usually do.
