try magic sysrequests:
alt-print-k to kill everything on the current terminal (you should get a new login screen)
alt-print-r to reset the keyboard configuration, followed by switching to another terminal (ctrl-alt-[f1,f2,...] - you should get a text login screen. Maybe there are kernel messages of the form:
[ uptime ] message. If there are, you could post a screenshot (you know, one with a camera) of them.
