This is sometimes (usually) due to some reason that KDE can't be started....

Such as a /home  that can't be found or belongs to someone else.  Usually 
though there is a message to at least tell you something is wrong if not 
exactly what.

Use the menu drop down from the login menu to try a different window mgr as 
suggested....  and if possible.  Might get you further to finding the problem.
