While logging into root username and password
it gives the answer

"Cannot start session due to some intrnals"

I can change my root password ,In the changed password also it is showing
"Cannot start seession due to some internals"

The server is acting as a proxy server

Ctrl-alt-f4

CTRL-ALT-F4 should get you to a text login.

It sounds like you have an X settings problem.

Once you fix that, CTRL-ALT-F7 got me back to an X login screen (Fedora 6).

I do not know a lot about debugging X. Once you log in, I'd look at logs in /var/log and also browse these forums for X-configuration help.

Insert your Fedora cd/dvd.

When login screen comes, press Ctrl+Alt+F1

Login as normal user

Issue the following command

Code:
sudo rpm -Uvh --replacepkgs xorg*
This may solve your problem.
