tty terminals not available after gui starts


Dear All,

Need your expert help !

I installed CentOS 64-bit on Asus M2A-VM motherboard with 4 GB memory. The installation went smoothly and after reboot, some thing very strange is happening:-

No terminal screen (tty1 till tty6 ) is available.Pressing <cntrl+alt+F1-F6> shows blank screens.
If I boot to init 3, then all the ttys are available.

The integrated graphics card is ATI Radeon 1250. The shared memory for Video from CMOS setup is 256 MB.
BIOS Revision of Asus Motherboard is 2201.


Can some one suggest solution for the issue ?


Thanking In Advance

Check out /etc/inittab to see if your consoles are being respawned in runlevel 5

something along these lines:

Code:
c1:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty1 linux
c2:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty2 linux
c3:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -n -l /usr/sbin/autologin 38400 tty3 linux
c4:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty4 linux
c5:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty5 linux
c6:12345:respawn:/sbin/agetty 38400 tty6 linux
cheers,
