    Thats exactly correct. Once you logon in try typing in startx. Had the same problem actually on my first install on my external usb and I just had to type in startx. Let me know if it works.

    its not backtrack 5 to use startx command for gui in kali use gdm3 command. you can later make a symbolic link to gdm3 with the name startx. it will then give gui with startx command as well.

    It might be file system errors

    use fsck command then reboot, first login by entering your password

    Did you try deleting xorg.conf from /etc/X11 and rebooting your PC?

    Can you be little more explicit..I do not understand...Can you boot into login screen or just cannot get even to that point.
