    Always breaking! "Loading" ubuntu, black screen, nothing. Low graphics mode works...?

    I just installed 11.04 and downloaded and installed a CRAP LOAD of stuff. I restored some of my settings, so this may be the problem. When I go into boot, I see ubuntu (bunchanumbers), ubuntu recovery, previous linux versions (repeats above two options, IDK whats up with that!), memtest, memtest (some different numbers), windows, windows recovery. When I hit the first option it goes to the ubuntu loading thing, which I thought was only on the CD... it then gives me a black screen adn does nothing. I can tap the power button and the thing you see when you boot off the CD (with the "checking.... state [ok]") then it says "unmounting weak filesystems" and "halting" or something.... It flashes so quick I can't read it. It then shuts down. When I go into Ubuntu Recovery, I can run all the checks and nothing comes back. I booted into low graphics mode and it worked. What do I need to do?

    Maybe you can try to boot in low graphics mode

    Then try to connect to the internet en type this in the terminal
    PHP Code:
    apt-get update 
    and hit enter, then do
    PHP Code:
    apt-get upgrade 
    hit enter again.

    Maybe it helps to check for some new drivers.

    Okahy. Nothing worked so far. Ran a bunch more things, reconfigured everything a few times (using recovery) and I found the error in a log...

    "Fatal startup error: No screens"

    Uhhh... That would explain the black screen, but why? How to fix?

    EDIT: I just restored the failsafe xorg file, started x and got this error

    Fatal server error:
    Server is already active for display 0
    If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
    and start again.



    .....

    Going to restart....


    EDIT! Fixed!
