what viewer are you using?

*COMPLETELY uninstall that viewer and delete ALL caches including your user caches. Try using CrapCleaner: http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

*Reinstall and attempt login.

What is the specific error? Are your graphics drivers crashing?

Do you have the latest version of your viewer?

Try turning all your graphics down to low and loading. That's a temporary fix I used while I was waiting for updated drivers and SL to patch their viewers to fix their OpenGL issues.

A quick search in google of the error text found the following thread in the nVidia forums:

Starting at message nine they refer to second life

Yep this is the same issue I was having. It's a problem specifically with SL and the way they implement openGL and nVidia drivers past I believe version 260 (which is very old by now)

To fix it, download and use this RLV viewer http://www.erestraint.com/realrestraint/

I use it now and I don't crash anymore. It's not the best viewer out there as far as major options but it works and doesn't crash. You can use it as a stop gap until Linden Labs releases the proper patch to the game that corrects this problem and everyone else codes it into their custom viewers.

Hmmm...you may need to roll back your drivers then to an older version. I forget the exact one, I'll have to ask Batche which one it is but I'm pretty sure it's one of the Geforce 260 release drivers.

You can go to their website and download past drivers and try doing that. That's what I used to do to get SL to work until this latest version of RLV came out. It's not 100% fixed because Batche still crashes from time to time yet strangely I don't so I don't really know.

Believe it or not, I had a very similar problem with my GPU. The solution that seemed to work for me was taking it out of its slot (PCI-E), blowing\using compressed air on the slot and putting it in firmly. So it COULD be dust in your slot making all the weird errors. It's worth a shot. =)
