X only runs from 'root'

   I have a strange problem. If I log into my system as me 'kevin' 
and type startx, Xwindows starts to get going (the screen goes 
black) then it fails and drops me back into my shell will a keyboard 
error. If I however, su up to root and do the same thing X will run 
fine. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this. If you need the 
full error message it gives me I could post that too (something 
about a bad file descriptor). However, as I said, it all runs fine from 
'root'. HELP!
