<ctrl>+<alt>+F7 (tty7) is the 7th virtual terminal (man chvt). It is the one
you are traditionally assigned when you start the computer and progress from
one runlevel to the next (X is usually called at the end). There is no
guarantee that tty7 will run X, so indeed run 'startx'. This depends on how
your machine was set up.
tty1 is a good place to escape to when things go awry because it rarely runs
X (not in distributions that I use). tty10 is good for debugging. You may
wish to make use of virtual terminals rather than complicate yourself with
Hope it helps and good luck,
