Unhappy Unable t switch to level 0


I have installed Fedora 14 on Vmware workstation.
When I am trying to switch to runlevel S/1,Just blank window is appearing, and I have to power off it forcibly as it doesnt prompt any shell.

How shall I proceed.

Have you tried using telinit to switch runlevels?

yup telinit command is available and can switch but still same prob in switching to 0/s/3

when I boot singleuser through passing single user option to kernel,it worked.
Even I could telinit to 3rd and 5th from there.

But once I come in gui interace, I couldn't switch.
Is it bug or something else.
