Lost xorg default display, lost GUI, lost direction...

I am an inexperienced Linux user and I was just in a serious car wreck. I am unable to get my kubuntu GUI running and, though I've done some troubleshooting, I need help from someone with more knowledge to help me more systematically figure out how to get this fixed. The auto accident has left me a bit scatterbrained... My troubleshooting skills aren't all there...
Any help would really be appreciated,
Ambrose

Reconfigure

Assuming you get to a command line, the following command should reset your xorg configuration back to a default.

'sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg -phigh'

This will hopefully overwrite your scrambled xorg.conf.
If you want to play around and make sure it configures it correctly, leave of the '-phigh' and it will get you to a menu system allowing you to reconfigure your display system.

If that doesn't work, I'd need to know a little more about exactly what's happening to figure it out.


Thanks for the reply... I

Thanks for the reply...
I was far too vague about the help I needed. I have done all the basic troubleshooting xserver options... I've done a manual dpkg-reconfigure as well as the -phigh option.
I also reinstalled the xcore meta-package and nvidia-glx-180 package. I have actually resolved the issue and what it turned out to be was the newest xorg.conf looks for the nvidia module in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ instead of /usr/X11R6/lib/modules. I learned though that the xorg.conf file can be told to reference multiple module locations. Problem solved!
Except now neither keyboard nor mouse work. :(
