Could you provide a little more infos, like :
- You can open others window managers but no KDE
- KDE worked before or KDE has never worked in your system

And if you could post the lines that seems relevant in /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /var/log/Xorg.1.log,
that will be nice too

No problem, type:
xwmconfig

then choose another window manager from the menu and try a startx
