    If your hardware is fine when you boot from in the Installer CD but not when you boot into regular OS X, then I'd tend to think that something's hosed with your OS X installation.

    As a last ditch effort, you could try to reinstall OS X from the CD, doing a "Custom" install and choosing "Archive and Install". This would reinstall OS X but save all of your stuff.
