    Go to the Software Center

    Go to system/admin/drivers and choose to turn off the nvidia driver and it should revert to the open driver.

    also, to find out the video card that is in it open a term window and type this in:

    sudo lspci -v
    Look for your video card

    When you installed it did it say drivers where available and that it wanted to install them?

    Also, Try this in a term window:

    dmesg |grep nvidia

    Re: Help me please i dont know what to do

    According to the specs here ,,,, link to graphics card specifications for computer above

    Its intel ... according to that lnk .... but as said earlier

    sudo lspci -v

    will give all the info
    just cut and paste it so we can see it ....

    The way you un-install things on Linux needs to be done with the software center or synaptic

    You cannot just go deleting files if they are related to things like video drivers ,,,, not sure it is drivers
    if there was theme pack .... (and to delete nvidia drivers etc you would need root privileges) .... seems odd ...

    But at least you are up and running again ....

    If it booted ok you could check the log files and see what it is detecting too ... if its in UNITY now
    then instead of classic ..... then is compiz running

    compiz --replace

    what happens if you do that ,,,,,,

    You have an intel graphics controller. I really dont know much about them. Im a Nvidia man myself. But I would use the default free driver for it or look up your specs on your laptop and see what others are doing. Google "Ubuntu <name of graphics card>" and see what you get.

    For now, Boot your laptop and hold down the shift key while it boots. Select safe boot (or something like that) and it will use the free driver for the intel graphics.
