Did you enable simple compiz config with your settings?

Did you try 1152x864 with Windows also? Is it your monitor's supported? is
the refresh rate safe for your monitor?

The blackout happened with my HP520 and happens if I enable the
*blur*option on the simple compiz config. I came around by editing the
.gnome and
.gnome-settings something like these... inside those folders I edited the
settings xml files and eliminated the blur containing tag and it came back

As a matter of fact I must also tell you that I have lots of alternatives to
login. 1. gnome two users with admin priviledge 2. KDE 3. Xfce 4 openbox
