I've encountered a login error, where every time I attempt to login, I receive the following interface (Neptune would be my computer's name),
I can login here, and from there on I can type in terminal commands. When I log in, it states that zero packages can be updated, and zero updates are security updates.
Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS Neptune tty1
Typing in "w" presents,
Nothing is working, and trying to load fail safe graphics in recovery mode through GRUB isn't working either (I've had this problem in the past with 10.10 and never found a solution so I wiped the HDD and restarted, but I was able to access the desktop interface in failsafe.), as it tells me that no monitors were detected. What can I do to solve this issue? It's rather sudden; one day it was working fine whilst the next, booting it causes this.
