Odd problem with X

Hey all! I believe this is my first post here. I absolutely love these forums. I've never had to post because I can always find the answer I'm looking for by searching. But this one has finally got me stumped and I can't seem to find any answers with my search terms. So anyway here is my problem.

I just got 10.2 loaded on a 1.7 celeron with an integrated intel graphics chipset. When I start X it runs great the first time kde loads without problem. After I've logged out back to the terminal I can't start X back up. It loads but the screen goes black. I do the 3 finger salute and hit the enter key as I know it will end my current session and takes me back to the terminal once again. I've checked out as many conf files as I can, seeing if I've made a mistake in a configuration and all looks fine. After I'm back to the terminal I see these errors:
Bad Window(invalid Window parameter) 3
WARNING KDirWatch: : can't handle 'Office/kword.desktop

Anybody have an idea as to why this is?

Thanks for the reply kodon! I checked the log and nothing in it that tells me that there is a problem. Any other ideas?

Try deleting your ~/.kde

It will erase all your pref's for kde so you can backup that dir before so if it doesn't work you're not hosed
