Post X server failure


My X server has suddenly stopped working. The error message says

XIO : Fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server :"0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

The six CUI terminals (F1 to F6) are working perfectly but the GUI terminal (F7) is not working.

What might have caused the problem, and how can I correct it?

No, the partition isn't 100% used. I have saved a lot of data after the problem occured. In fact, I have only one OS on the machine, and lot of space ought to be empty. And as far as I know, the /tmp folder never occupies any memory. Am I wrong?

Might you can tell us your current Distribution ?
I had the same problem once on slackware 10.0

"Connection reset by peer"
I recieved this error too because my XF86Config was wrong configured..
check out xorg.conf or XF86Config in /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config if the settings there are right for your system..
