Question Blank screen on upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10


I have just upgrade??? to Ubuntu 11.10 and ended up after upgrading with a blank scree and with no access to terminal.

I had similar problems with previou installations but overcame this by altering boot options at install by removing splash screen and adding nomemset.

Can anyone give me some advice or is it better to wait for ubunto 12.04?

Many thanks

Smile Blank screen on upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10

Thank you all for your help. I have manage to get my system up and running after a lot of trial and error using past links on the newbie forum. My solution was to boot into the menu and wait until the blank screen appeared.
At this stage I selected ctr+alt+spacebar+F1 all at same time. This took me to my Ubuntu desktop after I logged in with my password. The next stage was to download and install the proprietry drivers for Nvidia and restart my system.At present it is working. Watch this space! Thanks again
