You'll need to boot the machine to single user mode (if you Google for CentOS single user mode you should find instructions for how to do it) and see if /sbin/mingetty is present, for starters. The mingetty program is responsible for starting the text-mode consoles when your system finishes booting. It's usually always present and several instances are configured to start on boot (one for each of the virtual consoles, usually tty1-tty6, while the GUI is access via ctrl+alt+F7). If it's missing, there is likely something very wrong with the system and other things may be very broken as well. It's usually best to fix problems one at a time, so please see if you can resolve this, and then tell us exactly how you start the graphics (e.g. do you first login to a text console and then "startx", or does the system boot to a graphical login manager?) and any other error messages you receive when trying to do so.

The 2nd screenshot shows its failing to find a conf file; likely xorg.conf https://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/D...iguration.html.
See also the mentioned Xorg log file.
You should get similar info from /var/log/dmesg.
Its possible the system got updated and doesn't have the correct driver for the video.

If you have to set the xorg.conf manually, this article may be helpful https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xrandr

Hi chrism01,

Here I have attached the file as the result of "/var/log/dmesg" and "/var/log/Xorg.0.log"

Please suggest any solution. Still not booting with GUI.

@ btmiller
there are no "mingetty" file under "/sbin/". From the internet it is not installing using the yum. so I am trying by a local repository.
or any help from your end please ?
