If it's an overheat problem, you should see an entry in the bios log 
about the chip temperature.

Sounds more like a video card driver issue to me.  
Have you checked out the VIA download site(from http://viaembedded.com) 
to see if any of the drivers could help... 
Also, check out the VIA Arena forums site...  http://www.viaarena.com/ 
to ask questions specific to your board.

Does /var/log/messages tell you anything?
