There are many reasons this might be happening. Start troubleshooting by going to the plugins and unpublishing all fo them except authentication joomla.

I cannot find error reporting in Global Config..

In Global Config Under "System" the closest I can find is "Debug Settings"

BTW Im using Joomla 1.5.11

any reason you can't upgrade to 1.5.23.
1.5.11 has security issues.
Upgrading is very easy.

All you need to do is backup your site and go to this page here and follow instructions
http://docs.joomla.org/Upgrading_1.5_from_an_existing_1.5x_version

The debug setting is the correct one to turn on too

I've seen this before.  Sometimes the index.php page is really messed and has a lot of bad code in it.  I spent hours with someone in a similar situation to narrow it down to that.

Here's the thread for that question.  It might assist you with your problem, it might not, but it will give you a lot of different troubleshooting techniques we went through to resolve the problem.

And yes, upgrading your Joomla version is MOST recommended.

You might want to install this little script and run it to see if error reporting or error logging are in effect.

<?php phpinfo(); // YES THAT IS THE ENTIRE SCRIPT

If those features are turned off, and they are often turned off in "production" systems, you will get the blank page for a parse error.

I recently used this .htaccess file to make errors visible.
# display php errors
php_flag display_startup_errors on
php_flag display_errors on

Open in new window
