Strange X problem

I had a strange problem with x on my laptop. I was able to boot into the command line, and log on as user or root. But when I started x the xserver started up, I got the x curser and then a small white square in the middle of a black screen and the whole system was locked. I had to shut it down with the power button. It continued to happen, no matter what window manager I put in ~/.xinitrc. Then suddenly, this morning, everything is fine. The system boots up as normal.

I'm not sure what I'm asking for. Has anyone come across anything similar?

Re: Strange X problem

I've not encountered this behavior. I'd start by reviewing the Xorg.0.log.
