Session D-Bus not accessible
 
I'm putting this here because I have no idea where else to put it, and I AM a noob.

I am running Kubuntu 9.04 (jaunty jackalope) with KDE 4.2(?). Something happened, my computer froze, the screen showed a mirror image top to bottom (not flipped 180 degrees, but mirrored) and I did a hard reboot on my Dell Inspiron e1705. When I tried to start back up it gives the KDE wallet manager without the border, only the interior of the box and doesnt allow me to do anything (this is again mirrored top-to-bottom) the mouse however is the right way up, and it is responsive to movement, only.

Here is where it gets tricky, I have gone into the recovery mode in the GRUB and it allows me to log in as root with network capabilities. I do this, then startx, and I get the default startup screen then it opens KDE and gives a dialog saying as the title:

Session D-Bus not accessible
Cannot run with paramater '--icon'
when session D-Bus is not accessible.

I cannot click on anything. The mouse works, but only for movement. All else is unresponsive.

I have no idea what happened, it could have something to do with my trying to determine the proper video driver in mplayer, or whatever else. I did not, however add repositories that are incompatible.

I am lost and going crazy because the Kubuntu site will not keep me logged in so I can post this query.

Any help would be grand!!!
