Will the liveCD boot? If so, you can access a terminal from there. You could also reinstall if you can boot the CD.

Sure. Just edit the grub configuration and add a 3 at the end of the line to boot into single user mode.

Which graphics chip do you have?

You should really check your hardware.

i.e. Run memtest86+ for at least a night.
