Look for the first (EE) line in the output from startx. This will tell you the original error. Likely, you don't have the correct driver loaded or there's an issue detecting your hardware. Have you made any changes to your system recently?

were you using a proprietary ATI or Nvidia driver ?
if so you have to rebuild the kernel mod and reinstall the driver .
