I turned off my X server with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace. I used SysRq+Alt+B to reboot and now I can't get the X server back on.

The motherboard posts and I get the same screen as I had when I used the SysRq command except now none of the SysRq commands work. How can I get the X server running again?

Ctrl+Alt+Deleterestarts the computer from the black screen I'm getting frozen on. Also, magic SysRq key makes a higher pitch post noise. Thats the only response I can get at this screen.
