It is not necessary to remove /etc/init.d/[xgk]dm. Just use CTRL + ALT +
F1 to switch to a console, log in, become root and run
(sudo is also possible, of course)
Then, as a normal user (!), run startx and diagnose/fix your problem.
When you are done you can shut down X and run
to get your graphical log-in screen back. (Remember to log out from the
console after that or append " && exit" to the start command.)
