I did also experience this problem in Ubuntu (debian based linux).....But I already pin point the video card is not supported by, when it boot up and detects the HW...and starts the hotplug it halts. What I did is I use my motherboards built-in video adapter. I boot up again, problem solve...after that...I immediately download nvidia supported driver using apt-get ......voila.....

And your case...I think you have hardware incompatibility issues. try removing some unsupported devices you have like the one mention or something like that.
