I've had a dying video card do this to me. If you have a spare card
laying around, try swapping it out.

Worse-case, you tell the server to not startup X in run level 5. Edit
/etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf  and comment out this line:


	# 0=/usr/bin/X11/X,#0=/usr/bin/X11/X


if you use XDM or KDM, edit /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers and comment out

	#:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X
