Before you try anything else (after reading all the replies so far) try this:

kill sshd

now run it with:

sshd -d

this will run sshd in foreground. Go to diff. terminal, logon to it. Run ssh 
-v localhost and see waht happens on your ssh output and also check your sshd 
output. The sshd output will probably give you more info
