    The first picture was not helpful at all. The second picture shows that you have installed the Nvidia proprietary video driver. I have experienced issues with Nvidia drivers. If something like this happens again try activating the Nouveau open source driver or experimenting with another Nvidia driver.

    I have 12.04 among my Ubuntu installs but I have never had this problem because I have not updated the Nvidia driver. I am still using the Nvidia driver that I know works. But on my other installs of 12.10 & 13.04 I use Nouveau because the Nvidia drivers sometimes have a fight with Linux kernels and break the desktop.

    Regards.

    Sorry to hear that but probably explains your issue!

    Edit first post, click 'Go Advanced', change [ubuntu] prefix to [solved]. The regular method is broken after the last forum upgrade.
