Edited xorg.config > No graphicals.
A friend of mine (very new to linux) tried to change his xorg.config file because he was unable to get a higher resolution etc. and he changed it from this:
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "AOC 7F"
HorizSync 30.0 - 72.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 130.0
And now it´s messed up.
Please help him out cause I´m out of ideas.
Re: Edited xorg.config > No graphicals.
I'm guessing you would have re-edited xorg.conf to it's previous state except that when you boot you can't see anything? It a good idea to make your system boot to text (runlevel 3) when you want to modify your xorg.conf, just in case things don't go well.

You system should have one or more of the following (if you don't have a preference, try these in this order):joe, nano, pico, mc (and then F4 to edit), emacs, vi. Read about vi before you try that.
If you can't get to the text screen with ctrl-alt-F3 or F4 or F5, and you use the Grub bootloader, you may be able to use the boot parameter 'single' to get into the system for this.
To boot to the text screen by default, edit /etc/inittab by changing the line which reads 'id:5:initdefault' and change the 5 to a 3: 'id:3:initdefault'.
