Please provide such info as the type of computer and the type of video device that is inside it.
From a console as root, run the lspci command and look for a 'VGA device' and tell us what it says.
Also, check the logs for errors. The log you want is usually /var/log/xorg.0.log provided you have tried to start X and it failed.

There is a Centos live CD. Centos is supposed to be RHEL without all the trademarks and such

OK, for that Unichrome video device, there *are* drivers from Via, but as best as I can tell based on other similar threads, they are no better than using the vesa driver that comes with Linux.
Locate your /etc/xorg.conf file and change the driver to vesa, and save the file. Then restart your X server or reboot.
When your X tries to start the next time, if it fails, post for us the error(s) it gave you, and we can try to help further.
