Wow, that's an amazing thing!
Take a look at your /var/log/XFree86.0.log file near the end, and see what EE (errors) you are getting, Post all the (EE) stuff.
Try 'cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | grep EE' and see what pops out.
What is the make/model of the monitor?
Did you power down, and disconnect both ends of the monitor cable (if possible), and reconnect to see if that helps. A lose connector has been the downfall of more than one computer.
Post the relevent parts of your X config file. Someone here might be able to help.
