you switched to console (ctrl+alt+f2) that does not mean your GUI exited. You need to switch back by ctrl-alt-FX (x is probably 7, or 1 or 8 or ???)
That's why startx failed.

(if you really want to say thanks just click on yes)

The GUI started working well for sometimes , then I switched off the PC for 2 days and when i tried to re-open it ,
The mouse and keyboard are not working at all
when I switch to the terminal mode on booting , the keyboard is working well but on using
#startx :
The GUI opens without sensing any mouse movements or any keyboards presses
What do you think ?

I have no idea. Probably hardware related error, or maybe you will find some information in logs (as it was already mentioned).
