Welcome to the CentOS fora. The following reading is recommended for new users:

Intermittent problems are very difficult to debug. May be DNS, or perhaps a hardware/driver issue that was masked by turning off kudzu. I'd suggest looking for BIOS updates for the motherboard, and inspecting dmesg and /var/log/messages for errors. You can also boot in a more verbose mode by interrupting GRUB at startup by hitting a key, entering "a" to append/edit the kernel line, backspacing through "rhgb quiet", and adding "debug".

If still having problems figuring it out please use the [url=http://wiki.centos.org/FAQ/General/getinfo_drvr.sh?action=raw]getinfo_drvr.sh[/url] script described in the last link above to collect system information that may help with debugging.

You are welcome, and glad things are working for you now, but for the benefit of future searchers it would be nice if you shared the solution that worked.

i just stop some services which i think are unnecessary from "Service Configuration"
and it is working fine and no hang on startup.
thanks to guide me... :-)
