Boots to Black Screen after updating grub and booting to text mode
I booted into text mode from instructions on this page, http://goo.gl/ZT9oa. It worked fine but now I can't boot back into the graphical mode.
I also recently removed the 3D packages for Ubuntu 12.04 because of an unmet dependency. I was able to use it in 2D mode for a while. I installed compiz-config-settings-manager and updated the intel video drivers and the grub. Once I restarted my computer, I could view the purple splash screen, then....nothing, just a black screen and I could not boot into the desktop.
So, here's what I did: removed 3D packages (worked fine up to this point), then updated intel graphics and video drivers and installed ccsm, updated grub, rebooted into text mode. Yeah, quite a bit of work.
I need help in getting back to my GUI login and desktop urgently. Please help me out.

What happens if you enter
from the command line?
You can install KDE and see what happens. Do a web search for install KDE and you will find instructions.
