I have ubuntu amd64 installed and it has been working quite well. However, I recently uninstalled (deactivated) the suggested driver for my Asus EN210 graphics card and when I restarted, I was presented with the login screen. When I attempt to login, the login prompt disappears and I am left with the default background. I can escape (Ctrl-Alt-F1) to a command prompt, but there is very little I know how to do.

The odd thing was that I was able to login *once* with an access user I had created prior but never logged in with. I immediately switched users and experienced the same problem.

This has happened a couple of times and I have simply reinstalled ubuntu, but I would rather learn how to recover than wipe the slate clean.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
