I decided to stop using my password to enter Ubuntu (recently installed) and switch to automatic start up. Hit the relevant key, then restart. Received three notices, closed two, entered pass to get encryption code at third, then nothing but a blank, Ubuntu-colour screen. Unable to open Ubuntu. How the heck to I get myself out of this trap?

Did you install with the encrypted home option? If you did, you cannot use autologin because of the way ecryptfs works.
