Gnome keeps rebooting???

Hello all,

I am running Debian and am trying to log into a Gnome session. After I put in my username and password, the Gnome splash screen will show, then the desktop will show, and then the Gnome session will abruptly stop and go back to the Gnome Desktop Manager login screen.

If I try to log into a gnome session enough times, I get a screen that says "Failed to start the display server several times". Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance.
