Angry Error in starting XServer in kernel

Recently I downloaded and compiled the Kernel and set it up properly in "grub.conf" as I am using the GRUB for booting.

After I start booting it gives no error and i can see familiar
loding XXXXX [OK]

and then when it switches to Graphics mode (i.e. XServer) it just hangs showing only the cross (X) cursor in black background . Instead of loading the GUI Login screen.

I had setup all necessery files (such as, vmlinuz. ,initrd- etc).

No error is presented in bootup screen, only problem is in loading XServer.

Can any body help me ?
