Did you or can you try this line below as super user?
dpkg-reconfigure -a xserver-xorg
Other than that can you post the output of your config file for X?
Also in the X log file you should see a line starting (EEE) error...
if it mentions can't find screen it means the screen isnt configured
correctly in the X.org config file.
On a more worrying note, I only found one place over here in the Preston
area in Lancashire where I can get "the official pint of us" and when I
did gleefully place my order they poured it like it was a pint of lager.
I didn't pay obviously. Q: Does this sort of treatment even in the UK
warrant death by cattle prod abuse to the offender? ;-)
Hope this helps.
