I had just finished re-installing grub and when logging in I am constantly redirected to the ubuntu splash screen when entering in my credentials. I have re-installed lightdm, removed my home folder profile, tried using recovery disk to start fail-safe graphical environment. Looked through log files but not seeing anything that is helping me to pinpoint what the issue is. If there is a specific log file that can help me determine this please let me know which one.

I created a test user as well and same thing.
Grub is fine as I can login fine via CLI just not Xorg whether gnome, gnome3, or unity. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.
