Just to clarify, you selected "Desktop" during the install and have no GUI?

You could try this:

Maybe it set default runlevel to 3; check
Code:
cat /etc/inittab
Amend to '5' if required.

Another way to check
Code:
rpm -qa|grep -i desktop

cent defaults to installing Gnome
by default and automatically
so if it is NOT installed - there is a big problem with hardware
if it is just not running , then a less big of a hardware issue

please post the hardware specs
and is this a real install the the harddrive or a "live" usb thumb install

Isnít CentOS 6.2 using systemd instead of SysVinit? So the default run level can by checked by:
Code:
$ ls -lh /etc/systemd/system/default.target
where itís pointing to.

If I recall correctly, if you select a "minimal" CentOS install, it does not install a GUI.

Code:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.2 (Santiago)

 cat /etc/inittab
# inittab is only used by upstart for the default runlevel.
#
# ADDING OTHER CONFIGURATION HERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM.
#
# System initialization is started by /etc/init/rcS.conf
#
# Individual runlevels are started by /etc/init/rc.conf
#
# Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /etc/init/control-alt-delete.conf
#
# Terminal gettys are handled by /etc/init/tty.conf and /etc/init/serial.conf,
# with configuration in /etc/sysconfig/init.
#
# For information on how to write upstart event handlers, or how
# upstart works, see init(5), init(8), and initctl(8).
#
# Default runlevel. The runlevels used are:
#   0 - halt (Do NOT set initdefault to this)
#   1 - Single user mode
#   2 - Multiuser, without NFS (The same as 3, if you do not have networking)
#   3 - Full multiuser mode
#   4 - unused
#   5 - X11
#   6 - reboot (Do NOT set initdefault to this)

id:3:initdefault:
A server install won't(?) install a GUI.

I believe systemd is still only in Fedora .... unless it runs both???
