    what do you mean you cant enter the password? Usually the password in console mode it`s invisible i mean the password is typing there but you cant see it for security reason.

    For some reason you are starting in runlevel 3 which is terminal mode. Notmally runlevel 5 is GUI

    Log on as root ie type root for the user name.
    Enter the root password Note this does not echo to the screen!!!

    type init 5

    This should bring up the GUI if it does not tell use the error messages.
