Hi Paulo Roma Cavalcanti!

My guess is that the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file is for your old rather
than new computer.

You would probably find some "(EE)" lines in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log
file and some things in /var/log/messages..

When you boot from the USB stick look at the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
on the stick and compare with the one on the disk (same directory and
name and all).  Make a copy of your disk's current xorg.conf file and
then edit to access the same display and video interface as does the
one on your USB stick.

I think that it is likey that a ctl+alt+F1 would access the usual
terminal login booting your system as it is..  ctl+alt+F7 should
return you to your non working X server.

Have a lot of fun!
