Did you try to start with just the X server? (See the manpage of X).

Also, the logs of the X server should contain precious information (see
/var/log/Xorg.0.log or files named similarly).

Well, blindly typing things is not that hard, if you do it with
attention.  Also, if you have another computer, you could try to log
into it to see if there was a kernel panic or something similar.

A reinstallation from start is usually not necessary.
