From your dmesg:
Code:

There is a better architecture choice. Your CPU is 64-bit capable, but you installed OpenBSD/i386. OpenBSD/i386 is 32-bit. OpenBSD/i386 is limited to 3GB of RAM. OpenBSD/i368 has far fewer CPU registers available, making programs less efficient than the same programs on 64-bit systems. 32-bit memory movements use half the memory bus, also impacting processing efficiency.

My first recommendation: use OpenBSD/amd64.

Code:
acpivideo0 at acpi0: VGA_
acpivideo1 at acpi0: GFX0
If I'm reading this correctly, this appears to be a Hybrid Video system, with both Intel and NVIDIA graphics cards. OpenBSD does not support Hybrid Video.

My second recommendation: Issue the command $ startx. Allow X to fail and return to a shell prompt. Obtain and post a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log. This will help us determine what X is seeing. If the system actually crashes, reboot and let the system run fsck(8) automatically, then obtain this log file.
