I had the same trouble a while ago.
I have been watching this post to see if you were assisted.
Not as yet so i decided i would try.
First of all it happened to me quite a while ago and i am not a linux expert by any stretch of the imagination.
I have been racking my brain to remember how i fixed it. I think by memory i logged in with safe mode. Then started the control centre and went to hardware. (where the 3d setup is) and then to setup graphic server and setup graphics again. Then reboot and fingers crossed it will work.
Like i said it was a while ago but i think thats how i fixed it.
I guess you could also try the disk and do a repair??? might work.
Sorry i couldnt be more help, i will ask a mate tonight who also had this problem... Funny thing is i helped him fix it also. He hopefully remembers.
