    What did you get the runlevel to?

    Try changing the X server settings (which you could try to do with Xconfigurator - try invoking this from the command line) so that you use a different X-Server (a graphics card driver like thing).

    Also, try going back to runlevel 3 and just using:


    to start X Windows, so that you log in using the text console but then invoke X Windows yourself. See if that helps.
