What platform you using? ex. RedHat, Slackware, Mandrake. Also, You might want to make sure your video driver is correct for your card. Also check your monitor driver. RedHat 9 crashed on me untell I got the right motitor driver installed. Just a thought, maybe it can help.

RedHat 9 seams to have trouble with nvidea drivers. There is a FAQ about nvidea drivers at the top of the newbie forum. I know you cant load gnome, but if you can get in using fail safe or something the path to check your monitor and graphics card is "System Settings / Display Settings / Advanced Tab " You can configure and install drivers from there. I would read the Nvidea Drivers forum about the correct driver due to the fact I use a Radeon now. Hope this helps some.

is there a way to disable autostart x. it takes about 15 minutes before i get an error(after the error i can use a terminal). in the between i can not do a thing. so can i disable x whitout login in. (maby the bootleader or something).

if i can use linux again(whitout x ofcourse) i will try installing the display drivers again.
