Exclamation GUI not starting up in FC8

I installed FC8 on my pc, it was working fine. After some time i got blank i thought that the system is hanged and i forcefully hard rebooted the system. After rebooting it is moving to command prompt. when i give valid credentials the $ prompt will display. if i give startx then i will get a clock on right top corner and a terminal. I am not getting desktop icons and folder etc.,
