Not necessarily, by blank, do you mean like a command line login ??

If so, the first thing to try is
it might also depend on what graphics facility the PC has i.e. nvidia/ATi/i810 or whatever.

After you try the startx command, maybe you get an onscreen error. If so, what is it?

That may help someone with considerably more knowledge than me assist in diagnosis.
