Could you post a bit more information?
for example the error log and maybe your xorg.conf?

Start you PC where you have troubles running your X server.

Set the root password
Code:
passwd


Then start the SSH Server
Code:
/etc/init.d/sshd start


Figure out the IP of your PC (easiest way is to use ifconfig)
Code:
ifconfig


Then go to your PC where you do your postings and connect via ssh:
Code:
ssh <user>@<ip.of.your.pc>


Now you are on the system. Just open the log and copy & past it's content =)[/code]
Code:
less /var/log/Xorg.0.log
