@Kulpdeep

I think you missed what Chrism01 had asked you to do

Run "startx" or "init 5" from the shell and post the output which you get

OK, I think you also missing you mention what you are using OS and DE and DM (DE = desktop environment, DM = desktop manager, OS = what linux distro).

Also if you need help read what it's asked form you, like proper logs and so on.
