Make sure that your "caps lock' button isn't locked on ..... that's happened to me before, I didn't even know that I had hit it while putting in my p/w!

Thank ya for the response,I was begining to think no one knew anything abot this,I tried that i know that isnt it becase if ya type the wrong password or the caps is on,it will say invalid password.This is not the case.It acts like its abot to go into the main screen and then goes right back to the login screen.I cant do anything with it,im on a friends compter now....

Try adding the number 3 to your grub boot menu, should take you to a text login, then type in startx
Does black panther use KDM?
if so login as root and type in KDM and if it gets stuck, hit ctrl-alt-F1, then see any error messages
also check the Xorg log in /var/log

You could use almost any LiveCD/USB to access your files
