I am not a genius (by any stretch of the imagination :D) .. but I would
likely run an fsck on all the filesystem mounts .. I would likely use a
LIVE ISO to do that and make sure the hard drive is unmounted.
I would then likely try a GNOME group reinstall like this (as root)
yum reinstall @GNOME gdm
If none of that worked, then I would try reinstalling all the xorg-x11
packages I have installed on the machine.
If that did not work, I would buy a new hard drive, do a new install and
then use something like an external case to connect the old drive and
copy off any important stuff.
OR .. if I had backup, I would just restore it :D
Note, I am sure there are also any number of other things to try. Maybe
someone else will opine.
