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.
