It's beginning to sound like you need to try reinstalling gnome-settings-daemon, or see if uninstalling the nvidia driver makes the problem go away.

comment why does this system freeze if I run any user other than root? (gdm, xdm, lxdm, etc)
I actually have an external HDD that we can copy to, but the reason we wanted to recover this system (we gave up now) was cause it would make it much more simple for us to have the system running to access the data on it (it's complicated), and a live cd won't be the best bet because of the limited RAM (it's slow, and there are minor risks involved).
