A better solution would be to try to kill any KDE / kdm / X process via ssh from 
another PC (Laptop?) - if you have one.

You should also look into /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Look for any lines that begin 
with (EE).

You can also try to edit your xorg.conf (or XF86config, if you still use that; 
x.org uses this file if xorg.conf is not found) and change your graphics driver 
from nv / nvidia to a more generic one (Although the point of hanging doesn't 
indicate a graphics problem... but you can still try it!)
