FC5 wont Start X

I have 2 installations of FC5 on a Dell PowerEdge SC1425 servers with a KVM connected to both. Booting to X is a problem. It doesnt boot most times and it doesnt run startx from the command line. The screen just blanks out and the monitor stops recieving input. Switching VTs does not elicit any response from the system. The server stops responding totally like a Windos Machine

PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
