I do not know what's exactly wrong but sounds like your having problems with the X GUI, you could boot into single user mode, and change /etc/inittab id:5:initdefault: to id:3:initdefault: which should boot you up into console and not load X. If it's not 5 then that'd be a potential cause too as 5 should be the init runlevel for using a GUI interface. Unfortantly I can not be too helpful on this one as I don't use X much in Linux and never seen this problem occur before but atleast if you change down to init run level 3 you should be able to check out settings and such.
