What did you restore it from? Does the VM come up? Can you ssh into it?

Well, take a look into the Xorg.log. It'll likely tell you what ails it.

As expected the previous installation used the Cirrus virtual graphics, which is no longer used by default. You can either uninstall the cirrus driver, which should make the system fall back to VESA, which will work but won't be very fast. But with 2GB memory my VM handled 720p pretty well and it's definitely enough for any administration tasks. Alternatively you can add the cirrus card back in with
Code:
# qm set <vmid> -vga cirrus
Be aware that this will again require manual intervention the next time this, or a similar, machine is restored on a newer version of Proxmox and should probably be documented somewhere.
