I had a similar problem. The solution for me was to disable the grub
graphics mode. To do this: 

Edit /etc/default/grub. 

Uncomment or add the line:

Rebuild grub.cfg with the command:
sudo /usr/sbin/update-grub

Another posibility is that you have an old xorg.conf file. Xorg.conf
is generally no longer needed. You could try:

sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-old_backup
sudo service gdm restart
