Exclamation Cant Login to Main account, only Guest Ubuntu 12.04


I was in the middle of installing Amd-catalyst drivers for my computer when the install failed and I opened up tty because a wiki said too. I then typed xstart but nothing happended.

Then I couldn't get out of tty so I restarted my computer. After I restarted I tried to login to my user account and it brought up the tty screen and displays the following for about 1 second.

"checking battery state"
"stopping system v runlevel compatability"


Then I am immediately brought back to the login screen. I can login into the guest account with no problems. Can someone help me login again. I have suspiscions that it has to do with xstart

Have you tried booting to recovery mode?

This article describes how: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode

If you can, you may be able to run the diagnostics you need or at least collect more information.
