Impossible to say without more data.
Do you have any crash logs in Console ? Any other messages ?
What application are you running ? Try install a simple one like xclock and see if that works ?
Have you tired removing then reinstalling the xorg-server port ?
Are you actually using the xorg-server X11 server or do you perhaps have another one installed instead ?
Have you logged out and back in again, as required by the xorg-server instalation ?
