Most likely the ATI driver for your model does not work with the version of xorg (1.13) updated in CentOS 6.4. For more details on this issue, please see :

Try downgrading xorg by following this forum thread:

The system works with an older 6.4 release kernel (2.6.32-220.el6.i686) from which it was updated

kernel 2.6.32-220.el6 is from CentOS 6.2. 6.4 kernels are all 2.6.32-358.x.

As noted, this is not a kernel issue but rather is related to the version of X. Please show us the output returned by:

rpm -q xorg-x11-server-Xorg
