Umm... this look like weird! This never happen to me befire and don't know what's going on... I would certainly try to boot on CentOS CD/DVD in rescue mode using "linux rescue" cmd and restore passwd, group, shadow and gshadow files located in /etc if you got backup. You can also try to reset root password and reboot.

Hope this help.
