Xwindows install problem on laptop

I just did my first Debian install last evening.  Compaq Armada 1520 (oldie).

I used debconf to add Xwindows (HTTP install). I have never been able to get past the initial screen (after X-windows starts) with all the X's. The "X" cursor does go to a pointer, and then the machine hangs. I chose framebuffer option for X-windows.

I can't seem to interupt the boot process at any point - it boots, checks the disk for errors, gets all set - starts Xwindows and hangs.
