Even I have been facing the same problems.  when i give startx....
i get following error message:
giving up.
xinit: transport endpoint is already connected <error 127>: unable to connect to X server
xinit: no such process <error 3>: Server error.

and with startxwin it gives following error:
xterm Xt error: Can't open display:
and hence even I am stuck after just installing cygwin.  
can I get some help on this??
