i have ubuntu 10.10..tried to do some updates or whatever..i had several windows open and suddenly everything froze..so i just forced the shut down..and now when i try to restart my laptop, all im getting is this weird message, that some audiopulse disabled..and checking battery state... and nothing happens..when ctrl alt 2, i manage to login, but that gets me nowhere..still no desktop..nothing..just a black screen and terminal waiting for my commands?? HELP??

so much for trying to update my ubuntu and browsers etc. ugh. still 10.10 and now i cant even access the desktop.

PLEASE HELP
