Exclamation X86 Setup

Alright... here we go...

I was in the middle of my X windows setup, when a power surge shut down my comp. Well, when I turned it back on, I could only get the command line. So, is there a way to get BACK into the X Windows GUI setup? The command line setup doesn't quite work for me...
