    Hi Matt, welcome to the forums... what happens if you just turn the power back on?

    We would love to help but you need to give us more detail.

    Please type here what the PC says, "then it tells that some commands is unknown "

    Something you can try immediately, when the PC is first turned on, you will see a comment to hit the ESC key to enter the GRUB menu.
    EDIT: I removed the image link for fear of having it changed, will post image in next post!
    Select the option (recovery mode) and there are some options to auto-recover.

    Again, we need more detail!

    Actors make their living playing pretend, so why do we listen to them about how we should live in the real world?

    Ok can you be more specific with the error message. When you reach the command prompt (terminal) what happens if you use the command startx ?
    You may try and boot into recovery mode and use the xfix option also.

    It would be helpful to know exactly what the messages say.
