I suppose you can also login as normal user.

Please provide answers to the following questions:
1)
Try the command startx and see what is does? More or less working? If the screen is 'screwed' as with your graphical install, you can probably get out by pressing <ctrl><alt><backspace>.
2)
Make/model of video card/adapter and monitor.

execute this command and post the results (be careful to copy exactly - including case, and making sure you use the correct quotes):
Code:
grep '^(EE' /var/log/Xorg.0.log

You should turn off AIGLX. Look at the bottom of this page for instructions. You'll need to be root to edit the xorg.conf file.

I did all what is said.. Its still not working !!!

Still Screwed : /

by the way there was no Section named Extension so I added it like this at the end of the file :

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

and for Section ServerFlags it was like this:
Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "Yes"
EndSection


and I made it like this :

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AIGLX" "off"
Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "Yes"
EndSection
