After update from 12.04 to 12.10 starts to boot then black screen and no more.
I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 and planned to keep doing this until I get to 13.10. However, the first upgrade seems to have failed now all that happens is it starts with a black and white Ubuntu logo then the screen goes black and there is no more hard drive activity. I can use recovery and get to a terminal login screen, which asks for my username and password. Then I am where I would be if I brought up the terminal. I am not experienced enough with Ubuntu to know what to do next. Since I do have a backup of the two Linux partitions (/) and swap I can restore. But, since I am in learning mode with Ubuntu and have no data to lose, just a lot of programs and settings, I am not in any distress. I would like to fix this and go on to the other upgrades. I have a usb live of trusty and it boots the computer fine. The computer is an HP Pavilion G6 and is only about 9 months old. So can someone tell me where I go from here. Please remember I am a beginner.
