When I've had everything disappear after 'started display manager', I have had success by rebooting and passing 'nomodeset' as a command line argument to the kernel (i.e. in grub, press 'e' to edit the entry that is about to boot, and on the line that begins with linux add nomodeset to the end of the line, and press F10 to boot.)

The idea is that X is somehow trying to do something the hardware won't support, and passing nomodeset makes X not try to do that.
