I don't know how much you guys could find on my problem as written but i thought i would let you see if you haven't already what it is that caused this. I was having trouble with 'network manager' and someone told me to download 'wicd' and i thought i would try it. as i wrote somewhere i was having really good success with it but i had to finally reboot and i never got back in. this is the instruction I got to download and install wicd . I am wondering if there is anything in this that may stand out that caused my problem of not being able to reboot. and then my plea for help at the end.
# install wicd and dependencies
sudo apt-get install wicd
# lauch wicd tray icon, only needed now, not after reboot
(wicd-gtk --tray </dev/null &>/dev/null &)
# remove networkmanager and dependencies
sudo apt-get --purge autoremove dnsmasq-base geoclue-ubuntu-geoip gir1.2-networkmanager-1.0 libnm-glib-vpn1 libnm-glib4 libnm-gtk-common libnm-gtk0 libnm-util2 libproxy1-plugin-networkmanager mobile-broadband-provider-info network-manager network-manager-gnome network-manager-pptp network-manager-pptp-gnome
# kill networkmanager launched processes
sudo killall dhclient
sudo killall nm-applet
All done. Please open Menu > Internet > Wicd Network Manager, or the tray icon, and do a Disconnect followed by a Connect to re-enable your Internet connection.

Well, the commands i received from this thread are much appreciated. The commands worked . Everything looked fine after implementing them. However when i rebooted 3 no 4 consecuitive times i got
then the request for user and pass and then a black screen .
then on reboot with the shutoff button on the front of the computer i got a - or_
then i got the request for user and pass
then a message about a broken pipe
all of these produced a black screen after the pass and user were entered
i'm now on the 4? reboot with a black screen waiting ... been a while too ... wont wait longer.
Anyone know how i can get it back ????[/quote]
