First, what graphics card do you have? When in Ubuntu, at the terminal type
lspci and post the output for review. Thanks.

My graphics card is an Nvidia Gforce 7200. Before I upgraded I was able to configure the graphics card driver and ubuntu was working better than ever. Then after the upgrade all i've gotten is a black screen on .18 and a very low resolution setting on the .14 kernel that is in grub.
