Cool X Window Crashed

I have a Nvidia motherboard with a integrated graphic card. I have tried many times to get the X-window running, but without success. I had downloaded the driver from Nvidia and installed it. But when I tried to run kde, for the first few seconds, the screen looked fine, but afterward, it crashed. Then I reinstalled the whole system and the same thing happened.
Here are some the messages when the X crashed:

-XSERVTTransSocketOpenCOTTSever: Unable to open socket for inet6
-XSERVTTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/darkstar:0
-XSERVTTransMakeATTCOTSSErrorLististerror of inet6

-Bad window size.

I even tried to use a standalone Nvidia PCI graphic card, but the X crashed also.

Does anyone have any clue on what was going on and know how to fix it?

THanks a bunch in advance.

Doesn't /var/log/Xorg.0.log give you more detailed clues?
It looks like Xorg isn't set up properly.
