    	Monitor		"Configured Monitor"
    	Device		"Configured Video Device"
    	DefaultDepth	24
    	SubSection	"Display"
                    Depth	24
    		Modes	"1024x768" "800x600"
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection
    Can you please try these as well?
    Didn't help

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    all the while in the "recovery mode".

    Tried to install 8.04 on to my dell desktop with ATI x700 PCIE video card. After selecting "noapic apci=no nolapic" by pushing F6 during the installation process. I was able to fully install ubuntu without a problem. After the installation finished it asked to reboot the system. Upon restart, system goes through grub then a blank screen with "_" on the top left corner. Alt+ctrl+F1 yields not effect. Booting into recovery mode does nothing as well. This is a fresh install.

    Dell Optiplex 320
    Pentium Core Duo
    1gb of ram
    ATI X700 pci-e

    That's completely different card than my, but looks like the same problem.
    I have this problem from Ubuntu 7.10 to 8.10 beta.

    Now I'm using Debian Etch because there is no working and supported Ubuntu version
