    Code:
    less /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    note down HorizSync, VertiRefresh rates, Resolutions and Vedio driver only.
    edit all these values in the xorg.conf file of installed distro.
    OR boot up from Ubuntu LiveCd, press Alt+Ctrl+F1 and edit xorg.conf file.
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    press Alt+Ctrl+F7 to check if GUI works.

    EDIT:
    execute 'startx' at command line prompt after editing xorg.conf file and post error message if any.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Sorry that I haven't replied - 150 pages of rubbish ICT coursework on databases is swamping me! They don't even teach us SQL! lol. I'll try that out as soon as I finish reinstalling Windows XP (I need it for school - IM SORRY lol!)
