    I really doubt it. Also you have more problem than just this.

    Its a problem when you run X right. Try using fbset to turn off the use
    of accels for matroxfb. fbset -noaccel should do it. If you don't have the
    app you can download it at http://www.linux-fbdev.org. Just follow the
    link for fbdev utilities.
