Hi sethukpathi,

Just a quick thought, if you can get to the CLI (command line interface) after the system has rebooted, try typing the command;

user@host$ who -Hr

This should supply you with your current ran level...

user@host$ X

This should try and start X gui session, if it fails you should be left with the reason, why it has not.

I hope this is a some help
