Open the file /etc/inittab. There will be a line like 
Change the 5 to 3.

Make sure the IP of your network card has a corresponding name or
alias in /etc/hosts, and that name is same as printed by the
"hostname" command.

Start the X server by hand (in a shell).  The path of the error log
(if any) will be displayed on the screen.  You can capture all the
errors by starting X as:
startx 2>&1 > err_file
