at the LILO prompt type
you'll be in runlevel 3 now.
once your back in change the /etc/inittab again back to 3. Least untill you get it working right, then put 5 in again if you prefer.
Try run Xconfigurator to make sure your X server (the GUI) settings are ok for your hardware. From the blue screen description it's hard to tell whether it was gnome that died, or X server itself. If it's gnome I'm not to sure about why or how to maybe fix that, I'm a KDE fan myself sorry. Perhaps some more experienced with gnome will have a soluition.
