Try to boot with "single" argument to kernel so it doesn't try to run
gdm. Remove /etc/X11/default-display-manager. Reboot, gdm isn't run,
you're at the console. Try to startx and see the logs.

You could also try to login via ssh and see X /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Could you attach your xorg.conf too ?
