Re: GPIO pin 1

If you have no red LED, it means you have an undervoltage. Try taking out the microSD card and seeing if the red LED turns on. You could also try putting Raspbian on a different SD card in case the image is corrupted. What power supply are you using? The power supply is Vilos Adapter, 5 volts 2.5 a...

Maybe your power supply is dead / not good enough?

Try swapping power supplies.

Re: Bluetooth dongle, old R-Pi, no 'serial1' so no start!

I was thinking since it depends on "serial1" maybe it is an interface you have to turn on in raspi-config or the Raspberry Pi Configuration GUI?

Re: Wifi stopped working overnight

Try rebooting your router, and Pi if you haven't already. Rebooted both, the pi countless times. Assuming "wifi" means you are using a dongle, maybe the dongle broke? Will try that in the morning. On another note, maybe the driver is wrong. Do I need to install one manually? Looking at your signatu...

Re: Raspbian just seems extremly screwed up

Basically it looks like Raspbian is mounting /boot as /media/BackupUSB (my backup drive) because when I navigate to /boot it shows the contents of my flash drive and a broken config.txt. I don't know why it boots fine if it is mounting wrong, but when I go to the boot partition from my Windows lapto...

Re: Raspbian just seems extremly screwed up

Another possibility is that your micro-sd card is counterfeit and doesn't have the capacity you think it has. I've seen counterfeits come through reputable supply chain. Try (slow) reformatting with the official SD Association formatter, or using the f3 tools to check capacity. Are there any lightn...

I've never used and , TBH, was not aware of an "emergency mode" (unless, perhaps, you're using a NOOBS based install and booting to its RECOVERY mode). Quickly looking back through the thread you don't appear to have stated exactly which O.S. (& version) you are using** - if it's not Raspbian it ne...

Re: Splash screen not appearing properly?

What sort of "drive" did you "remove"? Are you booting from that (as opposed to a uSDHC card?). (ie. could simply be some form of delay in "picking up" the image from the boot drive perhaps?

Heres what fixed:
LXDE isn't crashing.
LXPanel isn't crashing, but it's loading slowly.
Apps don't seem to crash now.
Desktop icons are appearing more consistenetly.
Configuration rarely resetting now

What is wrong with Raspbian? Is my SD card corrupted?
The SD card is far more likely to be the problem than Raspbian. I don't think I've ever seen Raspbian crash.
Hmm, the SD card has been reliable. And it Windows doesn't see any problems after a scan. (But maybe it just scanned /boot?)
