I am relatively new to Ubuntu (and Linux for that matter) myself. So
I'm sure someone else will chime in, but, Ctrl-Alt-Backspace will
restart your X windows. I've had luck with that when I borked
something and got a blank screen for my efforts.
As for getting to a command prompt, Crtl-Atl-F1 or F2, or F3, et
cetera, through F6 will get you command line prompt. Ctrl-Alt-F7
will return you to your GUI.
Hope this helps,
Release 7.10, Kernel 2.6.22-14-generic
Dual 3.4 GHz Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU
2.2 GB RAM, ATI Radeon X300 Graphics
