Hi dhanya,

try the following - boot the recovery mode, login to the terminal. In the terminal type

Code: Select all
telinit 5

and hit enter. With some luck you should get your GUI. If so, uninstall and reinstall your graphics driver. If you don't get a GUI
try to un- and reinstall your graphics driver from the recovery mode console.
I believe in everything, except humans.
