    Hi all, I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 and after restarting i couldn't login to my desktop, i somehow lost my gdm login page and now i don't know what to do. I tried:

    sudo apt-get install gdm ubuntu-desktop

    but it says its already been installed, so I don't know whats going on, I'm only able to be on the black and white screen please help

    I didn't know Linux had a DOS screen. Sign in and type:
    Code:
    startx
    then see if you have any video drivers you need to install. Also, your system specs would be helpful.

    It says its fully updated and upgraded, gdm and ubuntu-desktop installed. It'll load the grub and then it'll show the loading screen, however once thats done, ususally the login screen will show, but now it just have a black screen requesting for a login
