    What do you have for a video card?
    You can download and install video driver and make other changes from a console window.
    I have NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M.
    You think this procedure won't work?

    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
    or
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    then reboot
    Can you please tell me how to download, install and make other changes from the console window.

    you can use wget command to download an nvidia driver from their website.
    I have done it before.
    the idea is download it, then install from the boot console window.

    You just have to log in from the boot menu screen to a command prompt with networking enabled.

    You need to find the details for getting this file using a google search. Or maybe someone else will know a better way to fix this.

    to install you navigate to the directory and type
    ./nameoffile.run
    ls shows the files in a directory. cd lets you move into the directory, etc...

    You got an error running that command so you likely do not have the xorg file in etc folder.

    here is a site that talks about doing this.
    there may be another way.

    for a quadro card, you need either:
    - the nvidia driver from the site
    - or install "nouveau" which work also with the quadro cards

    See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-current-updates/README.txt.gz for a complete list
    of supported GPUs and PCIIDs

    Hi,
    nouveau (open source driver for nvidia) is pre-installed. Have you tried it ?

    You can execute the commands below to make sure that no nvidia-proprietary driver left in your system and nouveau will be used.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf # if the file does not exist , then is OK 
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-common ubuntu-desktop
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    and at the end , give this command to reboot your pc
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    If everything work ok , then is not needed to install additional-proprietary nvidia driver.

    Thanks

    i get that same checking battery state message on my headless server. it's because I uninstalled a desktop manager. I am guessing lightdm was uninstalled when you uninstalled that gnome thingy. try to reinstall lightdm.

    also, what happens if at the checking battery state screen, you hit ctrl-alt-f1, login textually. then at the prompt enter this
    sudo service start lightdm

    the xorg.0.log file should reveal the problem, if he looks at it.

    you can from the root directory

    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log |more

    to see it. space bar and enter key will move it along.
