Most likely, judging from your comments, something is failing when your graphical environment starts up. To troubleshoot that the best thing you can do is login in text mode and start the graphical environment from that console by hand (not sure for CentOS but try with the command startx). That will at least give you more information on the screen if something is failing. If you encounter any errors and don't know how to solve them then please post the messages as verbose as you can.

Kind regards,
