Welcome to LQ.

Many users of Linpus have problems and simply replace it with another Linux distribution.

You will need to check your hardware against the recommended requirements for running distros such as Linux Mint 17.3 MATE, Lubuntu, MX-15, Zorin OS or Zorin OS Lite etc.

Distrowatch has a full list of available distros:

On another computer, I suggest that you download an .iso image for one of the above and burn it to DVD. Make sure that the BIOS is set for DVD to boot ahead of the hard drive.

Not sure if this is the problem, but the command needs to be typed in all lowercase:

is it even installed? Xorg that is? check your .xinitrc has what desktop, wm you want to start off of startx .., and that .xinitrc is an executable. chmod +x .xinitrc

# ~/.xinitrc
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)

xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

#xrdb -merge -I$HOME ~/.Xresources

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
  for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
    [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
  unset f

# exec gnome-session
# exec startkde
# exec startxfce4
# ...or the Window Manager of your choice
