First step would be to check error files for clues as to what is happening. 
Look in ~/.gnome-errors. Also, check log files in /var/log/gdm directory. 
For a problem occuring with X itself, look at /var/log/XFree86.0.log.

You could also run aptitude (or dselect) and check gnome packages for 
installation status.
