    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
