    12.04 upgrade to screen login prompt????

    Had 11.04 working great. Then decided to go for 12.04. Tried Update Mgr and it looked like it had worked(ie got a desktop environment, didn't pay much attention to it). Rebooted and it took me to the screen login prompt without any desktop environment. Command prompt says I'm in 12.04. Can log in fine but what's next? Got impatient and did a fresh install of 12.04 and the same thing happens. Sounds like video card/driver issues? Have an Nvidia card and I should have the most recent drivers with the fresh 12.04 download?

    Suggestions?
