Take a look at the end of /var/log/Xorg.0.log, maybe also 
/var/log/messages and see if there is any better diagnostic.  If there 
isn't, try running


from a graphical console window and see if any diagnostic can be seen 
from stderr.

I don't have any experience, maybe someone else can recommend a way. 
But the ideas above might help with a clue about the source of the problem.
