If you're the only person using your computer, and it's not letting you start X because of it,
then you should be safe to run:

Code:
sudo rm /temp/.x0lock
though I suspect it might be 'tmp' rather than 'temp'...

Have you switched and are now running the system in a virtual machine?
And again, please use code-tags, not fancy colors or anything else to post output of commands.

If this is not running in a VMware product then you have seriously messed something up in your configuration.

I migrated from Ubuntu 12.04 to 12.10 never did touch my config. The warning of low graphics mode came when upgrading.

By the way it was working fine on 12.04

In that case I would recommend a clean re-install of 12.10, something got seriously wrong with that upgrade.

Download an Ubuntu 12.10 ISO-image, burn it to a DVD and boot from it into live-mode. Use the live-node to copy any data you want to keep to an external device.
Then simply start the installer.
