I would suggest checking out the freebsd HAL, or Hardware Compatibility
List on the site to see if anything conflicts with what you have. If
you don't see anything, try one of two things:
1) Try a more recent version of FreeBSD (like 4.10 or 5.x)
2) Try removing unnecessary hardware until things work. If you have a
PCI/AGP video card, try that and disable your on-board card, for
Post your results here and we can help you from there.
