Unhappy please help me get out of the KDE console screen :( please

Ok guys thaks for everything but i told you in a new thread that i resolved the problem by installing the latest nvidia driver :nvidia linux x86 94.43.05 pkg 1 that did the job. The hard part was installing it but i finally did it after installing the distribution's libc developement package.And after i had it installed i could go to nvidia X settings and modify the resolution without haveing to deal with the xorg file and all that crazyness.
this is the new problem. this is my boot up screen :

1.ubuntu 7.10 i386 (not sure)
2. ubuntu 7.10 recovery
3. ubuntu generic
4.ubuntu generic recovery
5. some memory test application
6. windows XP

Normally the computer started on the first option loading up kubuntu very well.BUT after i put it on hibernate when i enter options 1 or 2 or 4 the linux enters in a console state.And i have no idea how to get out of there... yesterday when i pressed 3 and hit enter it seemed ok but today it's not i mean it starts i log in bla bla BUT there is no kmenu there is no backgroung picture there is nothing i can sucks ... please help me somehow please!!!! i dont know what hibetnation did but it screwed up everything. is there a way to start kubuntu from there (the bkack command like kde screen?) pease guys please

if you get a console then you can do anything.. do you have a prompt?
something like
root@host # _ ?
from there and if you have root access (that is the # not the $=> user@host $ _) then if you know that ALWAYS going through the option 1 you get where you want then restart the machine by:
init 6
if you cant solve you problem by reboot then try out this:
init 4
try it and tell me if you succeeded.
