    Desktop stuck at purple screen while booting

    Hi,

    My desktop seems to be stuck at a purple screen just after selecting it from GRUB.

    I have tried using the recovery and i can get in but my mouse seems to be jumping around the screen.

    Before this i was attempting to install the ATI graphics drivers but i removed all these via the recv console the first time.

    If i wait appox 5 minutes it will boot into Ubuntu 12.10

    Thanks
