Mgiacchetti if you have intel hardware you may have been hit with http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=998754 .

You can find what your graphics card is by going into recovery into root and doing



$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03)


This will give you info. about your chipset. As can be seen mine is an ancient Intel 845G/GL chipset.
