Not enough information to give you any help other than to guess.

My guess is that you have installed the vmware guest additions or whatever they're called. Those supply a vmware specific video driver and it's built for the kernel that you ran the install on and not for any other. If you update the kernel and reboot into it then you need to reinstall the vmware video drivers (if my guess is right and you are using them).
