    Hi izzydojo.

    Try going to text mode by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 or Ctrl+Alt+F2

    Then login, and try this commands to get information:

    To get your Ubuntu version:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    To know what is your graphic card and the driver being used:
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 vga
    To check for errors on the GUI initialization process:
    Code:
    grep \(EE\) /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    Try to get as much information as you can, and try to to post it back here.

    To go back to the GUI mode press Ctrl+Alt+F7 or Ctrl+Alt+F8

    Regards.

    Thanks.

    It seems you have a AMD graphic card, and you are using the radeon open source driver.

    I would try to install the AMD proprietary driver.

    Go into text mode again and run this commands:
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm stop
    
    sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.oldback
    
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
    
    sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
    
    sudo amdconfig --initial
    Then reboot your machine:
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    Let us know how it goes.
    Regards.
