problem with xserver

hi friends,

i try to install some application in fc9 and after rebooting a blank screen appeared without any login screen,,
but able to go to command prompt where if i try running startx it gives xserver already running ..

in second channel using startx -- :1 GUI is running properly ... after i remove /tmp/.X0-lock file

but after reboot it will be at the previous state ...
i think some application is using the .X0-lock or the x server ...
can any one help me in solving the problem ...

Just reboot and if you get a blank screen, hold Ctrl_alt and press F1, F2, F3 .... F7

Do you see login terminals? do you see your X screen?
