I have the same problem with ubuntu 8.04 on Dell latitude d630.
I think it somehow related to xorg packages, i've also had the same problem on debian unstable 2 week's ago, but now after apt get update & upgrade everything is working fine.

ajosep01, hit CTRL-ALT-backspace together and this should get you to a shell prompt.

Then try the following:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo reboot
