AS2511-RJ problem. Help please!

I upgraded the IOS on my AS2511-RJ a few weeks ago. I have been using it for weeks without any problem. Yesterday, I used it the whole day and then I turned it off on the afternoon to save electricity. I turned it back on at night but I couldnt connect to it through my crossover cable like I usually do. So I console to it and it was not letting me into User Exec Mode.  It was just stuck here:

UPDOWN: Interface Virtual-Access1, changed state to up

*Mar  1 00:01:25.951: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Virtual-Access1, changed state to up

Things that I have tried to troubleshoot:

  1. Turn it on and off
  2. Changed the Rollover cable (i was hoping its my cable)
  3. Google the problem (i didnt find any problems that were the same)
  4. Connect my Rollover cable to my 2501 and see how long it took to boot up (it took 2minutes max)
  5. Let it run for 20mins and see if it let me in User Exec Mode.

NOTE: The IOS installed to it is the same IOS (c2500-is-l.122-15.t17) that I installed on my (4x) 2501's that are working just fine.

Could the IOS be corrupted?

What could be the problem?

Thanks for the help.
