I'm fairly new to linux... only been running it as my primary OS for about a year now... but here's a little something that happened to me that sounds similar to your problem.

Somehow my nvidia drivers got fscked, and "kde" or "startx" wouldn't work...

After some googling I found a solution that allowed me to start KDE and get my drivers re-installed.

login as root...
modprobe nvidia
startx or kde

Now, I have no idea if this will work for you. This was all because of my nvidia drivers. Once I did that, I was able to get back into KDE and download / install my drivers.

Good luck, hope something I said helped.
