I just installed ubuntu (dual-booting with Windows XP), and ive been installing necessary programs and such. i checked the "mark all upgrades" button in Synaptics and let ubuntu do its thing. after the updates were complete, i was chatting on empathy and all of the sudden i cant type....anywhere. cursor was basically useless. so i restarted my laptop, and lo and behold, the following message pops up and the boot process goes no farther:
error: no such device: 7dabc3ea-74c2-4a53-bba3-f60d6271ffd1.
Im at quite a loss as to what to do next, and any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
