you can try setting the default init level to 3 (by default, the lv 3 is multi-user text terminal mode) in your /etc/inittab. To go from text to graphic use the command
as root. This will logout your session and enter level 5 (this does not re-start the daemon and system processes you see at booting, just the X window, login manager and desktop manager, etc.)
