well I had the same problem.... I fixed the problem by updating the system, under the recovery mode in ubuntu.
just do the following

$ apt-get update
$ apt-get upgrade
$ startx

if the xserver package is damaged which was the problem in my case its going to download a new one and set it up automatically although i think the screen is not as clear as before but at least I can burn my files on dvds...
