What are the error message/s that you get? Is any error message visible? If
not, then in failsafe mode, log in as 'root' with the root (administrator)

,----[ Command ]
| less /var/log/messages

Scroll down to the bottom? Can you spot the error? Is is potentially X, which
is responsible for graphical look-and-feel? Window managers depend on it. Is
your login screen graphical or text-based? Try looking at the log file of X,

,----[ Command ]
| less /var/log/XFree86.0.log 

(note that filenames may vary)

Best wishes,
