    Your right I think. It is a problem with MY Ubuntu. Decided since 
the logs were no help and changing xorg.conf had zero effect, I just 
reloaded Ubuntu again in a new partition and almost have it set up. 
Having my /home/user/ on it's own partition made getting back on quite 
easy. It appears to be a lot more stable.
