Try repairing the disk and permissions.
To do this boot into your install dvd, go to Utilities > Disk Utility, click your HDD from the left pane, click the First Aid tab, click Repair Disk, once done click Repair Disk Permissions.
This could take a while so be patient with it, once done reboot and see if you now have success logging in.
You could also try resetting the PRAM & NVRAM

Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM

Hope this helps
