Read through /var/log/Xorg.0.log and look for lines beginning with (EE).These are errors. You'll have to fix them before X will start. If you don't know how to do so then please post here and hopefully someone willbe able to help you.

neoelias,

First thing I would do is install the latest drivers for your card. I don't know why but whenever I have problem relating to graphics, 90% of the time, updated drivers seem to fix the problem.

Cheers,
