Reboot - at the GRUB screen, choose the latest "Recovery" option.
After a little while you should see a prompt for an action - choose
"Fix X Server" (or something to that effect), and once that finishes,
select "Continue Booting".
Alternatively, open a terminal and do:
sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_OLD
Then logout and log back in.
Having to reinstall is rare - you usually have to *try* to mess things
up that badly
