Xubuntu asking for password, over and over


Why can't I log into my Xubuntu Linux? I typed in the password that I put into the install field....and told it to automatically log in but it keeps asking me for a password when i reboot, when i type it incorrectly it tells me...but when I type it right - it acts like its going to log in but then goes right back to the login screen. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Don't you get an error message? Try selecting a failsafe session.

The only thing that shows is the login screen, so I pick my username. However, u can change the session u wish 2 log into. There are 2 XFCE sessions and 1 XTERM session from which u can cycle through after u click ur username. I try the two XFCE sessions, going from 1 to the next, putting in the password I chose 4 myself and it still acts like its going to log in but loops back to the login screen. If I choose the XTERM option...it logs in fully but gives me the Terminal...with no shell...I'm lost without the graphical interface!
