Looks like your wine program was trying to set a resolution and/or refresh rate not supported by your screen(s).

During boot, what do you see? Just the splash screen not going away?

Or does Ubuntu start successfully, it just takes too long?

The simplest way to find out if this is wine's fault would be to remove it and see if the problem goes away:

sudo apt-get remove --purge wine

I removed wine from my pc .and everything works perfectly but when I turn off the computer or restart it, it takes very long to boot .
And that makes me to leave it on all the time . and I wonder if wine had affected any part of my hard drive:p

ubuntu starts successfully . the problem is that it takes too long to boot up after turned off or restarted.
