I see gdm, etc, started.. but my screen is completely black, aside from the cursor. I can see the arrow and when everything starts I see the rotating circle cursor. I don't even know where to begin to start look for this. Here's a brief ps:

Any help? It looks like everything is running, I just can see any of it.

Appreciate it! Shawn
