I'll answer all your questions, because I'd been
in this situation many times over:
Does logging in locally work ? NO
Does logging in remotely work ? NO
Does logging in to terminal ? NO
Does logging in graphically ? NO
What's the solution to the problem ?

Scratching head and thinking what next.
I'm going to be rude to everyone else and tell you I'll solve your
problem in the next fifteen minutes provided you ignore everyone elses
instructions and answer the following:
Does logging in locally work?
Does logging in remotely work?
Does logging in to the terminal (Ctrl Alt f1) work?
Does logging in graphically work?
No offence to the others that have tried to help you, but I don't the the
advice you've been given is the best. Just answer that and we'll find out
No, you don't need to reinstall.
