@Lonston, I just tried start-statd, and it seems to do nothing. The command prompt simply returns, there is no output, and there is nothing to indicate anything has changed.

@Lonston, thank you for responding. If I go to the command prompt and type in startx, the screen goes black and nothing else happens. I'm actually at a different office now, but in a couple hours I'll be back at the machine, and I will try start-statd.
