    Default GUI Environment won't start

    Hey guys,

    i am a new member of the community and i need you help (What else?^^)

    I have installed BackTrack5 on my HDD. When I boot my computer, I enter my username (root) and the password.
    Then I want to start the GUI Environment, so I type the command startx. But then I have only a black screen.
    My TV says that there is no connection (cable = HDMI).
    Is it a problem with the HDMI-Cabel or is there something other wrong? When I boot the LiveCD everything works. :S

    Greetings,

    TRY #useradd <username>
    #passwd <password>
    Type new Unix password :
    #su - <password>
    #start-x
    /*this is because the root superuser has no GUI environment */
