It sounds like the gdm3 greeter is not launching for some reason. Try this to at least get into gnome, and then work from there:

CTRL + ALT + F1

for a terminal.

Log in with you user name and password. Type:

ps aux | grep gdm | awk '{print $2}' | xargs sudo kill $1

Then type:

startx

and it should work. Then, you have to further research the problem. I haven't been able to find a solution for the problem I think you're having.
