I have just received a new Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. I hooked it up, turned it on and I got a "Welcome to PIXEL" that hangs on "Starting NTP server" screen (I'm pretty sure pixel is the Raspbian GUI). Then after that happens, the welcome screen stays up, but it starts a command line. Does anyone know how to fix this?Picture Of it

    This is strange, and it is not the way it should look. What do you have on your SD-card? Can you enter text at the prompt? Did you try to run the command startx? If so, what happened? – Bex Nov 21 '16 at 9:50
  • @Bex Sorry for getting back so late. I can type, and startx works. It has Raspbian Jesse (latest) version installed. – averysumner Dec 1 '16 at 2:40
  • @averysumner is accepting or allowing you to typing ? – Edilson Jan 15 '17 at 9:39

For some reason X doesn't seem to start automatically. If this happens, try typing startx to start the graphical user environment.
