Hello everybody, I would like to ask a help with my problem:
I am newbie with Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu 11.10 in my laptop side by side with Windows 7. So I spare around 50 GB for Ubuntu, and I used the rest for my windows. Several months after, come a notification said that a new version is avalaible.
I chose to upgrade the Ubuntu version to 12.04, and the terminal showed me a lot of things. After the process is finished, it asked me to restart my computer. I did the restart, then I encountered these problem:
1. In the log in screen, I am only able to type my password to log in, but the other icon are not exist. So, what I can do there is just look at the calendar, time, shut down and log in.
(Attachment Trouble_1 and Trouble_2 shows the display)
2. After I logged in, the screen only give me a blue screen as shown in attachment Trouble_3 without anything. I couldn't access terminal nor have access to anything. What I can do is just pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del to log out, and I will meet the log in screen again.
My questions are:
1. How to solve this problem? I don't have any button to be pressed, nor any option to be chosen on the screen.
2. If I need to reinstall the Ubuntu, how can I reinstall it in the space that is occupied by the previous version? (The 50GB that I used for version 11.10, so that I don't need to spare more space from my Hard Disk) And how to reinstall it? Boot from installation CD or do it from terminal?
My laptop is: ACER Aspire Timeline X
Intel core i5-460, 64 bit, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650.
Thank you for your help with my problem ..
