Does control-alt-F2, -F3, -F4 get you line mode consoles? If so, you
should be able to login, and get dmesg, the X server log, and the logs
for whatever greeter program runs for graphical login.

If you can't get a line mode console, check if it's answering ping, and
if it's answering any tcp or udp based services (if you have any enabled).
Another thing to look at is netconsole to send kernel messages to a syslog
server running on another machine (or netcat at the destination if it doesn't
have syslog running),
