GUI won't start after wheezy upgrade

I am not in fact running wheezy. I got confused, it is Jesse.

Hi all,

I am running wheezy on an old Dell Inspiron B130. After updating today, =
after not having had the machine powered on for a few weeks, Gnome =
freezes on startup. I have the machine boot to command prompt, I run =
'start x' and the gui background comes up, but it hangs there and I =
can't do anything else. Some component of Gnome must have upgraded, as =
the wallpaper is different. =20

Wallpapers don't change on a stable system. ;-)

Are you sure you're still running wheezy on that machine?
Could you post
the contents of the file /etc/apt/sources.list please?
