Also dont forget to backup your samba shares if there's data in it that 
u'll like to keep before doing a fresh install.

Having said that, I don't think it's necessary for you to reinstall just 
to get X working. Have you tried reconfiguring X? I'd suggest posting 
your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and any error messages you get when trying to 
launch X and someone would be able to help you sort that out.
