View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrade to 10.04 - Login Screen Crash

October 31st, 2010, 03:31 AM
Hello everyone,

Today I was prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.1, and then again to 10.04

Doing these upgrades wreaked havoc on my system. I have been able to fix most of the problems that were caused but I am having trouble finding information on the following:

When I boot up the system and after passing the GRUB loader, the system freezes up at the login screen and I have to power down.

If I hit ESC at the GRUB screen and choose Kernel 2.6.32-25-generic (recovery mode) and then choose "failsafe graphic mode", then I am able to log in to GNOME as normal.

What should I do to fix this?

Please help me. I have been working on this problem for two days and still can't get this fixed.

I have tried reinstalling all the ATI, Radeon and fglrx drivers and all kinds of other things and I still can't get a clean boot, I can only get into GNOME by using failsafe X mode.

The system freezes at the login screen every single time no matter what I do.

Anyone have any clue as to what is causing this or how to fix??
