Hi James,

might be that the ZEN update updated your kernel(s).

If you have NVidia cards, just read this note from NVidia:

IMPORTANT: You need to recompile and install the nvidia kernel module
after each kernel update.

sh -K

You do this at runlevel 3 (where you seem to be), in the path where you
have your NVidia .run
(The driver you downloaded (?) from NVidia)

There might be other solutions, but try at least on one machine and see
if this works.
