you would need to explain what does "startx not working" means. Do you have an error mesasge? What have you tried. Have you checked the logs?

I think you mean to say that the gdm3 greeter will not launch, so you get a terminal instead of a graphical login screen. Not every distro uses startx. You might try launching gdm3.
