Reboot to runlevel 3. Do a "yum upgrade" to upgrade your system to the
latest packages. Reboot. If your system is still hung, reboot to
runlevel 3; e.g. at Grub menu prompt type an "a" and press "Enter"

Oops, omitted a "3" after the "a" above.

key. Log in as root.  Run "system-config-display" to specify your
graphics card and monitor. If the tests work go to runlevel 5, e.g.
"init 5".
