have you tried downloaded the linux kernel source? (check if /usr/src/linux exists)

if not, then you'll probably want to download and compile it

here's a great link on how to do it

it seams that english is not your native language. from what i understand, if you start x, then the screen goes blank? Is the hard drive going, and just that the monitor is not working? Or is x entirely not working? Does it give an error message?
