Hmmm, Some more information would help, but for starters:

Did you change anything recently that would cause this?

There are a few things you could try from the terminal. xconf should Automatically configure your x server. xorgconfig will ask you a bunch of questions and to the same thing. Both write your xorg.conf file.

You could also try using a different desktop environment if its just gnome that's giving you problems. "aptitude install kde" and the "xwmconfig" should let you try KDE instead.

Hope that helps a little. Maybe someone else has better ideas.
