I'm a newbie in ubuntu, not an an expert on windows eighter, just trying to get out of microsoft monopoly.
Last week I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 lts 64 bit on my laptop, via wubi. Though I was happly learning the basics of linux I had a crash today. My computer was running on batteries and it was dead. Due to lack of swap, it did not hybernate. When I tried to reboot, the splash screen appeared. As I enter user names password, instead of gnome an applet appears with instead of graphical interface. Since I lack script knowledge, I can unly type exit and return to previous splash screen. Recobver options didn't work eighter. What can I do?
