Are you kidding?

Please provide specific information if you'd really like some help. The exact error message for instance. What distro are you using? Did you follow the instructions given to try and fix the problem?

Please understand it's impossible to tell you how to fix a problem without knowing exactly what the problem is. You are not supplying enough information to even begin to troubleshoot this problem.

The EXACT error message would be helpful. Are you using gdm or kdm to log in to X?

Have you recently changed/added/removed anything from your system?

You could try deleting /home/yourhomedirectory/.kde and see if that fixes it. Sometimes this works.

Worst case, you could reinstall KDE.
