and the startx command does not work.

In what way does it "not work"? I would expect:

$ startx &> x.output

to wait a while, write some output to the file x.output and then return to the shell prompt on your system (because X is broken). The information written to the x.output file is what we're after here.

Another point: When I do the: init 5 command

Don't do this. It won't work until you've fixed your X configuration.

Also, In my grub.conf on the kernel line I was advised to put a "nofb"
parameter to solve an earlier problem. Could this be getting in the way now?
It was a display problem that time also but the screen was black then.

Possibly, I don't know.
