Unhappy "Fatal server error. Caught signal 11, server aborting" please help !

Ok, simply put, i cannot login to startx in any of my accounts, including root, and its all on my new computer. It happened after i tryed to install some video card drivers (which lead to having to update the kernal) and I always get a full screen of errors and the typical error stuff, at the end, displaying "Fatal server error. Caught signal 11, server aborting"

I have no idea what to do, and my cousin is coming over in about 3 hours and we were supposed to do some LAN gaming please help

I also ge this, i added this because I think EE means error:

"(EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPAN_DISPLAY: Invalid argument"
