KDE4 desktop problems

Apologies if this is a duplicate, but I sent it more than 6 hours ago and
haven't seen it arrive yet.
I have Mandriva 2008.1 with KDE4 on two laptops. One functions perfectly.
The second one is giving me big problem.
When I installed, everything looked absolutely fine. I added a few launchers
to the panel and made a few changes in System Settings. Still OK.
I then opened two spreadsheets in OpenOffice. One closed correctly, the other
crashed, and wouldn't close. I then tried an End Session, which got to a
blank screen with a cursor in the top left-hand corner.
Since then, the panel does not show when I log in. I can restore it by
right-clicking where it should be, and changing the size. Sometimes the Run
Command brings up only a shadow, though that seems to rectify itself after a
while. Asking for a reboot brings up a black and white patch with no text.
Clicking on the right area starts the shutdown, but gets to the black screen
+ cursor, and I have to CtrlAltDel after which it reboots.
Obviously something is either missing or corrupted. Any advice?
