Pi boots to flashing _ screen (Fixed)

Sun May 26, 2013 8:32 pm

OS: Raspbian

I recently updated my pi and I then restarted and all of the usual boot code appeared, but after that had disappeared the screen just had a flashing _ in the corner. I reflashed the SD Card and the same happened.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have tried reflashing the card again and the same thing has happened.

I can access raspi-config but it won't let me startx.

Have you tried a different OS?
Like Debian for instance?
Pi and Google...

I have found the source of the problem. The SD card i was using was somehow causing the corruption of startx. I have install it on a different sd card and it works perfectly.

Thanks
