Ok i have little knowledge to none of slackware

To do anything you need to log on it would help if you can log on as root:

Wen in root if slackware works similar to madrake try the command telinit 5
this should take you into graphics mode

What are your errors if any when you try the startx command? Also check the xf86 logs for any errors.

The console tool for configuring x is XF86config.

No point configuring your system to boot to xwindows i.e. runlevel 5 until startx command works.

What kind of video hardware do you have?
