I think your X is not loading for some reason. Posting a link to contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log would help. – viyyer Dec 3 '12 at 5:22

It's normal if you installed the server version. Did you?

You can just install the graphical desktop on a server if you did:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Or are you seeing some error messages?
