This is NOT how to ask for help---with an almost unreadable screenshot, no details on your system, etc.

I'll guess that your system is booting into terminal mode. Why? How did you set it during install?
At the prompt, try typing "startx"
For real help, put details in next post........

I agree. Some details will help.

Fitz:

do not expect good help here or anywhere else if you don't answer our questions and give us a complete picture of what you have, how you got there, and what you have tried.
Screenshots are not the way to do it.

OK, now we know it is TurboLinux.
How did you set it up during install?
What were you doing before it reverted to terminal mode?
Did you try "startx" as I suggested?

Can you re-boot and login as root? Does that make any difference?

How is Mandriva relevant to your issue? Does Mandriva work OK? Dual-boot setup?

I think he/she is using Mandriva (from that first screenshot) with no working X server. I think the Turbo Linux screenshot was to illustrate what was meant by "normal logon". Could be wrong, of course..

i set it up as an install not an upgrade
i believe i was on the login page and i pressed the 'more' button and there were options which took me to terminal mode (yes kinda stupid ofme)
and as stated in the above post, yes and i got the error: 'Connection refused (errno 111): Unable to connect to X server'

Sorry if that wasnt enough info
