Computer wont boot up into GUI


I have a HUGE problem . my ubuntu linux 5.04 distro won't boot up into GUI. it was working fine and i booted it up ... and it failed on 3 processes:

art-stop daemon unable to start /sbin/klogd : permission denied [FAIL]
starting gnome display manager [FAIL]
starting deferred execution scheduler [FAIL]

IT won't boot into gui, so it boots into tty and asks for my log in but when i try it says:

"unable to cd to /home/notig"

wtf is this all about ?? it has nothing to do with my xorg.conf file... i tried backing that up. Usually when there is a problem with a computer somebody has posted the exact same problem but i searched and didn't find anything

I really dont expect anyone to actually help me fix this but just trying to see what the hell happened. I could reinstall but i would rather know wtf is going on ! .

it's not a hardware issue.. because i have 64 bit on the second partition and windows on first working fine.. So its definitely something else. I can go into rescue mode but whats the point if i dont know what to change >:P

Well im defenatly not a linux expert but if you got nothing on that linux box just blow the @#$$@ thing away and reload it that is what i would do. I had the same issue with suse using nvidia vid card it would work for a while untill i would update the driver then crash the gui would not log on and then if i tried to put the pass word in it would do just like if i didnt put anything "refresh" my guest is that you installed something wrongly and now its looking for it cant find it and crashed the grafical x server . Makes sence to ya ?
