i had this when with gnome occasionally long time ago.
i am sure you can login to text mode (level 3). and u able to create a new user and login as that new user. this means your system is fine. just x issue.
my error message at that time was session lasted too short. it may have something to do with .Xauth.. file. delete this file should work it out
