kdm not starting up -- sometimes

I am using kubuntu feisty and I am encountering two problems.

1. When booting up, right after the grub prompt and the message saying:
starting ... 

the screen goes blank. Boot up will only proceed if I press alt-F1. I have
found this key combo purely by luck :).

2. Nine times out of ten, the screen goes blank right after the messages
say reading /etc/rc.local.

Nothing works at this moment. There is no response to any key press. I
must use the reset switch. The kdm screeen comes up definitely the next

This behaviour has started after a fortnight or so after the initial install.

           Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
